By Request: pf changs mongolian beef


After I made the lettuce wraps from PF Changs... I had a few requests for this mongolian beef recipe. Honestly, I have never ordered this before, because I always order lettuce wraps and orange chicken. So, I thought I would give it a go. It was awesome... one of my new favorite recipes, AND, I had everything the recipe called for... SCORE!

On a side note, I get my flank steak from Winco. It is a great price and really good quality meat. I used to get it from Costco, which is a little more expensive, but not much.

PF Changs Mongolian Beef

2 tbsp Vegetable oil
1 tsp Ginger, minced
2 tbsp Garlic, chopped
1/2 cup Soy sauce
1 cup Dark brown sugar
1 cup Vegetable oil
1 lb Flank steak
1/4 cup Cornstarch
3 Green onions sliced

Heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil in skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add ginger and garlic and let sizzle for 30 seconds, then quickly add soy sauce. Gradually add the brown sugar and let it dissolve while frequently stirring. Let the sauce come to a boil, then simmer for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Cut the flank steak into bite sized pieces against the grain of the meat. Place meat and corn starch in a bag and coat the meat. Let meat sit for 10 minutes, so the cornstarch sticks to the meat.

While meat is sitting, put the cup of vegetable oil in a wok/ skillet and heat on medium-high until hot, but not smoking. Add the meat to the wok, mix around the meat and let it brown for about 2 minutes (It will have more time to cook later). Promptly remove the meat from the pan with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to drain.

Clean the pan out and return meat to pan and cook on high for about 2 more minutes. Add the sauce to the pan and cook for 1 minute. Add the green onions and cook for 1 minute longer. Remove from heat and serve on top of rice.

  10. Oh Sienna, the Chang Mongolian Beef is fabulous although a little time is needed in preparation but easy to put together. (Who says you have to let the beef sit in the cornstarch to get it to stick? Maybe it'll get a thicker coat? I'll try it and see.) Anyway, thanks. Good share as always.

    1. Add a little Hoison sauce and a bit Soy to the cornstarch when you coat the meat. Gets a nice sticky coat on it!

  14. I have tried this recipe a few times and never had success. But the version I've tried called for deep-frying the meat. I think I'll try your version and see if I have better luck. Thanks!!
