This Mongolian Beef recipe takes less than 30 minutes to make and tastes even better than your favorite Chinese takeout. Super easy, delicious dinner!
Mongolian Beef is by far my favorite dinner choice when I go to any Chinese restaurant. I’ve had some darn good versions of this meal at various restaurants. I’ve always shied away from making it at home because I thought there would be noooo possible way I could replicate such a delicious meal. I WAS SO WRONG. YOU GUYS! This recipe has changed my life! It is FAR easier than I ever anticipated (25 minutes from start to eating!) and I cannot ever properly explain to you how delicious it tastes. It is tastier than my favorite version from P.F. Chang’s and let me tell you, friends, that is saying A LOT because P.F. Chang’s makes a dang good Mongolian Beef.
How do you make Mongolian Beef?
I’m happy to tell you that there are very few steps and just a few ingredients required to make this tasty dish. The sauce in Mongolian Beef typically includes soy sauce, brown sugar and garlic. Coating the flank steak strips in cornstarch is a must and be sure not to overcook the beef in the pan. When everything comes together, you will have one tasty little meal!

To spice up this dish add red pepper flakes to the soy sauce mixture, as well as a pinch or two of cayenne pepper.
A few additional notes about Mongolian Beef:
To healthify the recipe, use low-sodium soy sauce.
Slice the flank steak against the grain for best results.
This dish tastes best when served with white rice and sliced green onions.
