If you sometimes get a craving for PF Chang's Mongolian beef like I do, you'll be happy to know I've got you covered with this incredibly easy homemade 30-minute recipe that is even better than the original!
Prep Time: 10minutes
Cook Time: 20minutes
Total Time: 30minutes
1 poundflank steak, thinly sliced against grain
1/4cuplight soy sauce
1/2cupbrown sugar, packed
For serving: Cooked rice, Green Onions, Sesame Seeds
In a large bowl, combine the sliced flank steak (make sure to remove extra fat) and cornstarch. Stir until the beef is coated.
In a medium size pot or pan, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic and ginger. Cook over medium heat until it has thickened, about 5 minutes. Whisk occasionally.
Place about 1/2 cup oil in a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the beef and fry until the edges are browned and the meat is cooked through, about 2 minutes. Then place beef on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any fat.
Once sauce has thickened, add the beef and stir together until coated. Then serve over rice. Top with green onions and sesame seeds if desired.
