Delicious Mongolian Beef

My family loves Chinese food, and I’ve learned the way to recreate a number of our favorite restaurant classics like shrimp Chinese fried rice, kung pao chicken and this tender and flavorful Mongolian beef. This recipe starts with beefsteak, which is thinly sliced then tossed during a little cornstarch.

The meat is seared during a hot pan until a crispy coating is made. While the meat is cooking, it’s time to form the sauce which consists of soy, vegetable oil, garlic, ginger and sugar. The steak is tossed within the sauce along side a couple of green onions, then you’re able to eat. 

This dish is known as after a stir fried dish called Mongolian barbecue, which originated in Taiwan. None of the ingredients or cooking methods were from traditional Mongolian cuisine. This dish is most frequently found in Chinese-American restaurants within the us.
