How To Make maddy and bill's mongolian beef with spring onions

  • 1
    In a saucepan on medium heat, warm up the sesame oil. Add garlic and ginger and cook for one minute. Stir in the brown sugar, water and soy sauce. Increase heat to a boil and cook for five minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • 2
    Mix the beef and cornstarch in a bowl until coated. Let this sit and rest for about 15 minutes.
  • 3
    Heat the vegetable oil in a large fry pan or wok and fry the beef until it is slightly crispy. This will take about five minutes. Remove the beef and set on a paper towel lined plate.
  • 4
    Add the bell pepper and mushrooms to the heated skillet. Fry on medium heat until the peppers are slightly soft, and the mushrooms are browned.
  • 5
    Add the beef, prepared sauce and the green onions to the pan. Bring to a boil and cook for about five minutes, stirring frequently.
  • 6
    Add a little cornstarch and water to the sauce if you need to thicken it further. The sauce should be the consistency of a thick spaghetti sauce. Serve over rice.
