What? Mongolian Beef in a burrito? Yes! Burritos are the perfect way to roll this classic Chinese food favorite into a complete meal. Not to mention that they are a really fun spin on family dinner and show just how creative you can get when you need to put dinner on the table fast.
With kids involved in just about every school club and sport there is, I had to figure out how to get ahead of the game. That's when I discovered that you can roll just about anything into a burrito and kids will eat it. If you can roll something they already love into a burrito... BONUS!
My kids love Asian food. In fact just about every kid I know loves it, too. So, rolling their favorite Mongolian Beef into a burrito was a "no brainer." The bonus of serving dinner in a burrito is that you can roll them up ahead of time and they are ready to re-heat whenever the kids get home. PLUS, they are great for eating in the car on the way to the game or concert or practice, or...
I roll up a whole batch of Mongolian Beef Burritos at once then, wrap them individually in parchment or waxed paper so they are ready for kids to re-heat themselves.
Our new cookbook, BURRITOS!, is full of fun and unexpected twists to the traditional BURRITOS! We have divided the 70 plus recipes into chapters highlighting Updated Classics, New South of the Border, All-American Classics and Around the Globe which includes this Mongolian Beef BURRITOS! recipe as well as other favorites from around the world. I even rolled five of my favorite DESSERTS! into mini BURRITOS! and deep fried them into chimichangas.
You can purchase BURRITOS! at your local bookstores and gift shops or you can order on line. Here is a link to our page where you will find several different links to where you can order BURRITOS! on line. The Barnes and Noble near my house does not have it in stock but, they will order it for you and, if you have it delivered to the store, there is no postage fee at all.
