Meal planning is hard you guys and I struggle with it more often than you would think. I’ll spend hours meal planning and creating a grocery list on Saturday, shop on Sunday evening or early Monday morning so I can cook dinner Sunday through Thursday. Friday and Saturday dinners are left up in the air for whatever we feel like or leftovers from the week. Typically what happens is that what meal I schedule to make isn’t necessarily what I feel like making come Wednesday or Thursday. The struggle is real. But each week I do try to plan for a stir-fry dinner for at least one of those nights — sometimes twice.

As of lately, I’ve been making this Mongolian beef stir-fry and my family loves it. It could be the crispy edges of the thinly sliced steak, or the sweet yet savory, garlicky ginger sauce. Either way, my family will eat. it. all. Malloree will just have some saucy steak and roasted broccoli in a bowl (still not a fan of rice) and Haileigh, Pat and I load our bowls up and drizzle ours with a little extra Sriracha for a spicy kick.

All in all this is a easy dinner that can be made any night of the week. Prep ahead, slicing the steak, making the sauce and chopping any veggies in advance and you can save yourself even more time.

Who doesn’t love the sound of that?
