Mongolian Beef has no connection with traditional Mongolian cuisines but that doesn't stop us from eating this Chinese-American creation. The term Mongolian is meant to imply the food is "exotic". Nevertheless, the dish is tasty and very simple to re-create at home. You may have a harder time convincing your family it's not take out. Now consider this our version of Mongolian Beef, if you are a purist omit the vegetables and add chopped green onions at the end.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Flank Steak
  • 1/2 Bell Pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup Broccoli
  • 2 tsp Peanut Oil
  • 1/2 tsp ginger, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Peanut Oil for Frying

Directions:

Sauce:
  1. Heat 2 tsp of peanut oil in a medium saucepan over low heat.
  2. Add ginger and garlic, then immediately add soy sauce and water. Do not brown the garlic.
  3. Add brown sugar to the sauce pan and mix until dissolved.
  4. Heat to medium and boil sauce for 2-3 minutes until sauce thickens. Remove from heat when complete.
Mongolian Beef:
  1. Slice flank steak into ΒΌ inch strips against the grain
  2. Coat the steak pieces with the cornstarch and rest for 10 minutes
  3. Heat one cup of peanut oil in a wok/skillet over medium until oil is hot.
  4. Add the beef and saute for 2 minutes until slightly brown on the ends. Do not cook thoroughly yet.
  5. Remove beef to a paper towel and pour out the oil.
  6. Add the vegetables to the slightly oiled wok and cook for 5 minutes.
  7. When almost complete add the beef and simmer for 1 minute.
  8. Then add the sauce and cook while stirring for an additional minute.
  9. Remove to plate and enjoy your Mongolian Beef.

What a great recipe! Packed with flavor! I purchased a flank steak a few weeks ago, when I came across your recipe. Due to the holiday rush, I never got around to making it. Pulled the flank steak out today and in 30 quick minutes, had a delicious dinner on the table. I didn't have the veggies, so I went with your purist recommendation! Hubby especially loved it! Thank you!
