Copycat P.F. Chang’s Mongolian Beef
- 1 pound flank steak cut in long strips
- ¼ cup cornstarch
- 2 green onions sliced
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- ½ teaspoon ginger minced
- ½ cup soy sauce
- ½ cup water
- ⅓ cup brown sugar
- Vegetable oil
- Coat beef strips in cornstarch and place on a plate. Let stand for about 5-10 minutes.
- Slice the green onions and set aside.
- Heat the sesame oil in a wok or frying pan, over medium heat, being careful not to let it get too hot. Add the garlic and ginger and saute for about 1 minute, being careful not to let it burn. Then add the soy sauce, water and brown sugar, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Heat about 2 inches of oil in a wide pot over medium heat. Add the beef in one layer and fry until browned, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully remove the beef slices with a slotted spoon and let them drain on a paper towel.
- Put the wok or pan with the sauce back over medium heat and add the beef strips and bring to a simmer. Add the green onions, simmer for another minute or so. Serve over rice.
