Mongolian Beef

Lets just say I am SOO glad to be eating meat again. When I was pregnant, I couldn't stand the sight or smell of any meat. Now I can not get enough!

This recipe is so easy and SO GOOD! I mean just look at it! My mouth is drooling and I am already planning on making it again.


2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon ginger, minced
1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
vegetable oil, for frying (about 1 cup)
1 lb flank steak
1/4 cup cornstarch
4 large green onions, sliced

Make the sauce by heating 2 tsp of vegetable oil in a medium saucepan over med/low heat.

Add ginger and garlic to the pan and quickly add the soy sauce and water before the garlic scorches.

Dissolve the brown sugar in the sauce, then raise the heat to about medium and boil the sauce for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce thickens.

Remove it from the heat.

Slice the flank steak against the grain into strips. 

Dip the steak pieces into the cornstarch.

Heat up one cup of oil in a wok (you may also use a skillet for this step as long as the beef will be mostly covered with oil).

Add the beef to the oil and sauté for just two-three minutes, or until the beef just begins to darken on the edges.
Stir the meat around a little so that it cooks evenly.

After a couple minutes, use a large slotted spoon to take the meat out and onto paper towels, then pour the oil out of the wok or skillet.

Put the pan back over the heat, dump the meat back into it and simmer for one minute.

Add the sauce, cook for one minute while stirring, then add half the  green onions.
Serve over rice, garnish with the other half of green onions.

  2. This looks great. In fact all your meals look great. I commend you on cooking such great looking meals, homeschooling, and planning for Shabbat with 3 kids around. How do you do it? Wondering if you use any meal planning sites or if you just prep/plan off your own lists. Thanks!!!
