Mongolian Beef is one of my favorites to order when I go to PF Chang's. I love the flavor of the beef and the tenderness. It is my go to dish. I was super excited when I found this recipe as I was doing some random searching.
I made this recipe for dinner last night and it was every bit as good as PF Chang's. The meat was tender and the sauce was very tasty with a slight garlic and ginger taste. Better than take out any day of the week.
PF Chang's Style Mongolian Beef
From Spend With Pennies
2 teaspoons + 2 tablespoons oil (vegetable or olive)
1/2 teaspoon ginger , minced
4 cloves garlic , finely minced
1/2 cup soy sauce (low sodium is best)
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 lb flank steak (or your favorite cut of beef thinly sliced)
1/3 cup cornstarch
2 green onions , sliced
1. Heat oil in a small pan over medium low. Add ginger and garlic and stir just until fragrant (about 1 minute). Add soy sauce, water and brown sugar and bring to a boil. Let boil 3-5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Set aside.
2. Slice the flank steak into 1/4" slices and toss with cornstarch. Gently shake off any excess.
Place 1 tablespoon at a time of oil in a pan or wok and heat over medium high heat. Cook the beef in small batches for about 2 minutes. (It doesn't need to cook all of the way through,it will cook completely when combined with the sauce).
3. Once all the beef has been cooked, combine with the sauce and heat over medium until hot and bubbly. Remove from heat and stir in green onions. Serve over rice.
