G is here with her version of how she likes to cook Mongolian Beef. Mongolian Beef is one of those favorite entrée’s you’ll find in restaurants such as P.F. Chang’s and is the perfect recipe for those who would like to have a different twist to their regular everyday home-cooked steak. Below you will find ingredients, directions and a little bit of humor as G attempts to cook a delicious entrée worthy to eat.


½ tsp of Hoisin Sauce

4 tbsp of Soy Sauce

½ a tsp Cornstarch

½ a cup of Beef Broth

1 pound of Sirloin strip steak cut into thin slices

1 bag of frozen vegetables

2 cups of rice (optional)

2 crushed cloves of Garlic

¾ of sliced Green Onions

1 tsp of sugar


Less than a half a tsp of Ginger

Yum Yum sauce (optional)


  1. Mix the soy sauce, beef broth, Hoisin sauce, sugar, garlic and ginger into a bowl and mix it together. G uses less than a tsp of ginger because it can overpower the other ingredients but this is personal preference so you can add more if you’d like.
  1. G likes to add vegetables to this recipe so you can either buy a bag of frozen vegetables or buy fresh vegetables. G purchased a frozen vegetables bag that includes broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. Follow the bags instructions.
  1. Cover the raw Sirloin strips with garlic to add flavor. Make sure it’s not ginger as the bottles look extremely similar! If you happen to make a mistake and find ginger all over your steak, like G did, then quickly wash it out.
  1. Brown the meat in the frying pan on medium-high heat.
  1. Add the vegetables into the pan, stir and then add the mixture. Continue to stir and let it thicken. Add a couple of drops of soy sauce along with salt.
  2. Put some more cornstarch into a separate cup-about 1/3- add water and stir it to thicken slightly before pouring it slowly into the pan.
  1. (OPTIONAL) G cooked brown and white rice to accompany the dish. You can also use noodles.
  1. (OPTIONAL) As a side sauce, G recommends using a shrimp/steak sauce to add a creamy taste. G used an “Original” Japanese Shrimp/Steak Sauce known as “Yum Yum” for this dish.

And you’re done. This is a quick and easy recipe that cooks in about 20 minutes and is perfect for those who want a delicious dinner without much of the hassle.
