It is disrespectful because it is a lazy way to refer a Mongolian dish. General Tso Chicken was called this way because it was rumored that it was his invention. Whereas referring Genghis Khan as Mongolian barbeque when there was no association between the two other than ethnic-- is just a result of lazy, and apathetic way to properly address/respect other's culture. How would Japanese feel if we call certain Japanese food the: "Hirohito"?! Mutual understanding is needed.
