Dinner, Instant Pot, Lunch

Weight Watchers Mongolian Beef

Are you looking for a quick weeknight meal? Are you looking for healthy meals that are low in points? If so, this recipe is for you!

Some nights I don’t have time to mess around in the kitchen. That’s one of the many reasons I love my Instant Pot! Dinner is done fast and it tastes like it’s been cooking all day!

As much as I like Chinese food I don’t go to Chinese restaurants very often. I worry about the oil and sauce that they use. I find it difficult to accurately track it.

The one thing I do like to get is egg drop soup. That is very low in points and I find it to be very filling.

I made rice to go with this Mongolian Beef but you could also do riced cauliflower for fewer points. I’ve had it both ways and they are both good.
