Easy Mongolian Beef with Mushrooms

I have finally decided to make this again and I am so glad I did. It's held up well and I am still in love with this super easy Mongolian Beef with Mushrooms recipe!

Yes.  I am STILL on an Asian food kick.  I had such fulfillment with the Garlic Ginger Chicken I made the other day that I am still craving more.  This time I wanted Mongolian Beef.  I found a copy cat for PF Chang's Mongolian Beef on Damn Delicious and had to try it.  I did make some changes but I did follow their recipe in spirit.  

  • 1 pound steak (I bought some pre-sliced stir fry steak.  Yeah...I'm a bit lazy)
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced (I like a lot.  I used six plus I sliced them larger and at an angle. Reserve a handful)
  • Sliced Mushrooms
  • SAUCE:
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce (I used Tamari)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed 
  • 2 tbsp. of Palm Sugar (I get mine from Season With Spice)
  • 1 tbsp. Garlic Ginger Paste (buy it at the store near the jarred garlic)
  • 2 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. of Sesame Oil
  • 1/2 cup of water (or you can use beef broth)
  • Garnish:
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Reserved handful of green onions

  • In a large bowl, combine steak and cornstarch and coat the steak with the cornstarch.
  • In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, brown sugar, palm sugar, garlic ginger paste, vegetable oil,  sesame oil and  water.  Heat until just slightly thickened.
  • Heat 1/2 cup vegetable oil in a large wok. Add beef and mushrooms and fry until browned and cooked through, about 1-2 minutes. 
  • Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.  
  • Get rid of the excess oil.
  • Add beef and soy sauce mixture to the saucepan over medium heat and cook until sauce thickens, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in green onions.
  • Serve over rice, noodles, whatever you like and garnish with sesame seeds and reserved green onions.
  • Like heat? Add some sriracha, sambal oelek or even Korean Chili Flakes and you will have a happy mouth.
