beef round steak, cut into thin strips
2 1/2 teaspoons
red pepper flakes
vegetable oil, divided
carrots, thinly sliced
green onions, cut into 2 inch pieces
Made it for my family and my dad had 4 helpings! Instead of just putting 1 T of soy sauce over the beef strips, I marinated them in 1/2 C soy, plus the garlic and cornstarch. Then before I stir-fried it, I strained off most of the excess soy sauce. Worked fine, but I did have to add a little extra cornstarch at the end to get the sauce to thicken. This is definitely a keeper, thanks for the recipe!
Very good, but i did have to adjust some things, based on prevous reviews. I tripled the sauce and added some ginger (1tsp.) and chilipowder (1/2 tsp) to it. I also added some mushrooms, but that's cause i just had some left. One thing i really missed in the marinade was some ketjap manis (indonesian, very sugary type of soy sauce) for extra flavour, so i added 2 tablespoons. I also reduced the red peper.
Overal it came out awesome served with some plain white rice. But there was lotsa preperation and it would have been bland and way too hot (just peper flavour) without the adjustments.
Fabulous! I added more red pepper, only because we like spicey - I also added honey to even out the saltiness of the soy sauce. Ginger, garlic and sesame oil compliment well, too.
This recipe is the first time I made Mongolian Beef. My advice is to cut up everything before you start to cook because there is alot to chop up. The recipe is pretty spicy, so have cold drinks on hand!
This was a very tasty and easy recipe. I recommend slicing the round steak very thin or you will have to cook it a little longer than indicated. I used fresh sliced mushrooms (my husband requested them) and more carrots and green onions than listed.
Although this doesn't taste like the traditional "Mongolian Beef" dish, it is delicious!! People- do NOT make changes to this dish, I promise it's great as is! It's a 5 star dish in my opinion. And I will definitely be making it again.
Word of warning though- it does make a lot of dishes :)
My husband who is not a beef fan LOVED this dish!!! I added snow peas and bean sprouts(because we love them) to the final dish and for some more spice I added a few quirts of SRIRACHA HOT CHILI SAUCE(normally found at Thai restaurants, yet you can purchase in the Asian food section at the grocery store.) I served it all atop of Lo Mein noodles. YUMMY!
P.S. Made this again but used Low Sodium Soy Sauce...bad, bad move..better for you, just not as good as the regular soy sauce.
Everyone thought this was excellent. Think I will double the sauce part next time..like more juice for our noodles! Great blend of flavors..we like spicy food and this could have been spicier.
