How To Make mongolian beef

  • 1
    Cut the flank steak against the grain into thick bite-size pieces
  • 2
    mix the cornstarch, and hoisin sauce together and coat the steak. I found it easiest to put the steak into a plastic bag or a bowl so its easier to get everything coated! let that sit for about 20 minutes
  • 3
    While you are letting the steak sit you want to get started on the sauce. Start by heating up the tsp of vegetable oil in a non stick pan or wok and add the ginger and garlic to it.
  • 4
    before you can let it scorch add the soy sauce water and brown sugar. Bring it to a boil so that the brown sugar devolves then bring the temp down to low.
  • 5
    In another pan heat up the other 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil and add the steak, let it simmer for about 10 minutes until it starts to get golden brown
  • 6
    Add the sauce to the pan and cook for another 10-15 minutes and serve. We eat ours with green beans and rice! :)
