Mongolian 'Beefless' Beef (Vegetarian)

Yum! This is easy and really makes a change from the same old flavours. It really does taste like restaurant food! I have made it with tofu and with fake beef (President's Choice) and it is was good both ways. The tofu is less expensive and a bit more delicate. The fake beef was more chewy and occasionally a bit of 'Tofurkey' flavour sneaked through.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a baking dish, combine Tamari, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, Hoisin sauce, sesame oil and water. Chop Tofu in medium strips and add. Stir well, making sure the tofu is thoroughly covered in sauce.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour, up to one hour.
  3. Prepare rice. When rice is cooked, leave covered and begin to prepare 'beef'.
  4. Fry onion and carrots in peanut oil in a frying pan over medium heat until onion is translucent.
  5. Add 'beef' and sauce the beef was in to frying pan. Fry 5-10 minutes, until heated through.
  6. Serve over rice, topped with chopped green onion. Enjoy!

I enjoyed the sauce and the veggies! Next time I will try it with fake meat for a little chewier texture. Thanks Elise and Family!
