My roommate and I really enjoy this recipe and it is part of our regular rotation. I made a few changes based upon previous reviews: Used only 3 bunches of green onions instead of 4. Added a medium yellow onion cut into wedges. Added 4 cloves of minced garlic and approximately 1" of fresh grated ginger root to the marinade. Used 2 tablespoon of Aleppo pepper instead of the crushed red pepper and whole dried red chile peppers. I found that the Aleppo adds a nice bite to the dish without being too hot (I'm a whimp when it comes to hot food). I did not think the soy sauce was too overpowering and there was plenty of salt. With the above changes it makes this dish great! Good luck!
Update: You may substitute vanilla extract for the sherry. I tried this and it tasted the same.
This recipe was ok, but like others had written, it still needed something. I decided to try some garlic and ginger, I sauteed them in a separate pan and added them in toward the end. Fabulous! I cooked it for the family I'm a chef for and they raved!
This is IT! This is what I've been looking for! I disagree with the two previous posts- this is "eat it 2 times a week, yummy!" Doubling the sauce is not a bad idea if you like more sauce. I just kept it covered while cooking so the sauce didn't cook down. I added some sweet onions along with the green onions- just me preference. This is my new favorite recipe.
I was looking for something that would come close to the Mongolian Beef our favorite Chinese restaurant (well, not the favorite so much as the closest) serves. This surpassed it. I added a tablespoon of hoisin sauce and 1/2 tsp of baking soda to the marinade/sauce. I also reduced the cornstarch to 1 tablespoon. I stir fried the green onions along with some thinly sliced yellow onion and green bell pepper because that's how King's Garden does it. I also didn't use quite as much oil as called for, and everything came out terrific. My daughter claimed it was much better than the restaurant's! Thanks, Kimber!
I've made this recipe countless times. My husband regularly asks for it. I add mushrooms and carrots to the saute and serve with fried rice. Oh yum!
YUM! Great recipe that tastes like a restaurant dish.
I did make a few modifications. Added broccoli, added more sesame oil and cut down on the crushed red pepper. I served it over maifun rice noodles.
I used sirloin steak and cut them into strips, turned out very tender and tasty. Thank you for an excellent recipe.
This was pretty good, but I was looking for something like PFChang's. Probably will try another recipe before this one again.
