Mongolian Beef

(1 Votes)
25 Min

Big flavor, little time. Now that's a combination we will always love. This Mongolian Beef recipe is a take-out classic. Grab your chopsticks (or your forks, if you prefer) and chow down on this tasty, homemade dish with your family. We love serving this one with a scoop of rice or noodles for an authentically tasty meal.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce (see Note)
  • 1/4 cup light soy sauce
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 pounds boneless top sirloin, cut into thin slices
  • 2 bunches green onions, cut diagonally into 1-1/2-inch slices
  • Warm cooked rice
What To Do:
  1. Stir together first 5 ingredients until mixture is smooth.
  2. Heat 1-1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat 2 minutes. Add beef, in batches, and stir-fry 8 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove from skillet.
  3. Pour remaining 1-1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil in skillet; heat 2 minutes. Add green onions, and stir-fry 5 minutes or until tender.
  4. Add beef and cornstarch mixture to skillet, stirring constantly 1 minute or until mixture is thickened. Serve immediately over warm cooked rice.

Don't let the hoisin sauce in this simple stir-fry scare you. You can find it at your local supermarket in the Asian food section. It's a sweet and spicy sauce that adds big flavor to the dish and will keep in the fridge for the next time you need it.

Good Grief! When did people get so incredibly rude! To Bob in AL... you need to learn some manners!

To: camom Aprl 10, 2012 Are you stupid or what? The receipe calls for rice. If you want noodles, go to your local grocery store and buy it. Bob in AL

Take a chill pill - carmom might have been asking about the cellophane noodles that most restaurants serve the meat on. Carmom - get cellophane noodles - most chinese markets and some decently stocked regular grocery. It doesn't take much - you briefly put them into hot oil to get them to puff. Don't use the whole package at once.

Where do I get the noodles to go with it?
