How to Make Mongolian Beef


  1. Place beef strips in a large bowl and add Shaoxing wine, baking soda, salt and pepper; stir to coat and let it sit for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile make the sauce; in a medium bowl, combine beef broth, brown sugar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce and cornstarch. Whisk well to blend and set aside.
  3. Half an hour later, add ¼ cup cornstarch to the beef strips; stir to coat.
  4. In a heavy bottom skillet over medium heat, add ½ cup canola oil. When the temperature reaches 365ºF, working in batches, add beef strips and sear until browned, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to absorb excess oil. Let them sit while working with the remaining strips.
  5. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add 1 tbsp. canola oil and chili oil. When hot but not smoking, stir in ginger and garlic; sauté for 30 seconds or until they start to brown. Add white parts of green onions and sauté for 15-20 seconds before pouring in the sauce; stir to blend. Carefully add fried beef strips and stir them into the sauce until well coated and heated through. Add green parts of green onions and stir well; remove from the heat.
  6. Spoon mixture over a bed of rice and sprinkle on some sesame seeds; serve immediately. Serves 4
