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. 

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce (see Note)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 pound boneless top sirloin, cut into thin slices
  • 4 scallions, cut diagonally into 1-inch slices
  • 4 cups cooked rice, warmed

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk cornstarch, broth, soy sauce, sesame oil, and hoison sauce; set aside. 
  2. In a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat, heat vegetable oil until hot. Add beef and stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes, or until no longer pink. Remove from skillet.
  3. Add broth mixture to skillet and heat until thickened. Add beef back to skillet along with scallions, and heat 2 minutes, or until heated through. Serve over 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.

Five stars ! Super easy to make it made a lot more sauce than the picture shows. Refrigerates/reheats well. Travels well. (Couldn't get the rating area to accept my five stars).

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?
