    So delicious!!! I cut the sugar in half. I like adding broccoli and peppers to bulk it up.

    We love this dish. I've made it with both tvp and beyond mince. I prefer the beyond mince as the protein. I steam some broccollini drizzled with sesame oil and seeds as a side. Spicy, sweet salty delicousness!

    Tastes exactly the way you think it does!! Super simple and quick. I used impossible meat and it came out awesome

    This is excellent. Quick meal with great flavors. Used coconut sugar and started with half a cup, then added more to taste since I did not want it too sweet. Used impossible meat and that worked like a charm. Oil-free so missing the hint of seasame but still great and satisfying. Served with perfectly cooked basmati rice

    I followed the recipe almost exactly and quite enjoyed it! I did have to cook it longer than the recipe recommended after adding the sauce to get it caramelized. Next time I would add less sugar but I prefer things less sweet.

    The flavor was very “Mongolian beef”. My family enjoyed it. We need to try some different brands of veggie crumbles to perfect it.

    This is a great dish-warm or cold! Cut the sugar as it is sweet. Will definitely make again!

    I used 1 1/2 pkgs of Beyond Beef crumbles and Tamari instead of soy sauce to make the whole meal gluten free. Doubled the amount of tamari (soy sauce) and sesame oil, added sugar, in 1/4 cup increments, to taste, and was generous with red pepper flakes since everyone loves spice. Served on top of jasmine rice with kimchi. Delicious!

    Very good quick meal. I made with Quorn mince (closest equivalent in the UK I guessed) and worked great.

    These was amazing. My daughter who loves everything Korean lit up when she tasted this. Thanks for the recipe.

    Fantastic recipe! I typically reveal to my "meat loving" family that i served them a vegetarian meal after all servings have been accounted. This was a huge hit with all!!!

    I added shredded carrots and it turned out very well. It was moist and flavorful. I did double the sauce so we could have extra for the rice we ate it with.

    I absolutely love this recipe! I did cut the sugar in half like other people said. I turn mine into a bowl with sautéed mushrooms and steamed broccoli. Yummy!
    It was delicious, however I’m glad that I read others reviews first as even with a third of the sugar it was too sweet for me, I added some tamarind paste which balanced it nicely. Will make it again for sure.

    Tasted really good. Didn't put as much sugar - not much of a sweet tooth. My husband liked it too, and this was a great way to cook a meal quickly while also getting a break from our usual home food.

    Pretty tasty. I’d just cut back on the sugar a bit- It was sweeter than I would have liked. Also maybe put a number (8 ounces or whatever) on the tvp ingredient . Saying ‘a package’ isn’t helpful even if your are dealing with something that most people would encounter (like ‘one package’ of instant yeast). Also don’t you need to reconstitute the tvp? Most people might not know that.

    Turned out well. Not as “Asian” tasting as I would expect (though I’ve never had Korean beef in my life so nothing to compare it to) but still was a great quick meal to have when we don’t know what to make (which is every night lol). We had it with jasmine rice and added leftover stir fry veggies that we had in the fridge. My non vegan husband really liked it, and that is always a plus in my books!

    Family loved it. Added a little more soy sauce and oil because I used soy curls.

    Quick and easy meal! I used less sugar than instructed, and it was still pretty sweet.
