This was delicious. I ended up marinating for maybe 2 hours and the beef was so tender. The sauce was perfect! Can't wait to make this again. Thanks!
We truly enjoyed this recipe. I do agree that it looks more complicated than it really is. The sauce and the seasoning should definitely be prepped ahead of time. I followed this as written, but I omitted the bamboo shoots and instead I served it with sauteed broccoli and brown rice. I was hoping to get that thick, dark Mongolian sauce that I have had at PFChangs, but it came out a little runny. I believe that is because I did not drain the meat entirely. I was able to thicken it up with some cornstarch at the end, but I will definitely drain th meat better next time. I am so glad to have found this recipe on here. I have always wanted to make it! Thanks :)
Used venison instead of beef. Awesome recipe. I added cashews in with the vegetables. I've eaten this at restaurants, but I think this was better. I also added curry, and crushed mustard. I'm always looking for good recipes for venison, and this one was one of the best.
We've never eaten anything mongolian before, so we dont know if this tastes anything like it is supposed to, but we thought it was really good! There werent any strong flavors, everything was very subtle, but for some reason we just ate and ate and ate all of it! There has ALWAYS been enough left over for my bf's lunch the next day but not this time! Served with white rice. =)
Only 4 stars because I tend to be stingy. This was a very respectable recipe that I will use to build upon. I served it over rice with an abundance of tsien tsien peppers crushed into the mix at the last minute or two. (There's no accounting for taste, is there? We like it hot around here.) Improvements? For me? Forget the bamboo shoots, use a whole sliced up onion instead. Other improvements probably are not improvements.
This wasn't quite like the Mongolgian Beef we've had in any restaurant, but we enjoyed it very much. I did have to use thin sliced sirloin instead of flank steak and I went with the carrot option instead of bamboo shoots. We will be making this again, I suspect it will get better with my own practice! Thank you tgobbi for sharing your wonderful recipe.
Very good recipe. Seems complicated from looking at all of the ingredients, but it really isn't. It was easy to prepare and quite good!
My...oh...my! This was great! The marinade made the beef brown beautifully and the sauce was delicious served over rice. We had an assortment of stir-fried vegetables with the beef for a lovely meal. Thank you, tgobbi for a wonderful way to prepare beef!
So easy to prepare & so incredibly delicious. 100% restaurant quality. My thanks to the poster; this recipe will permit Ron to enjoy a favorite Asian meal within the boundaries of his renal diabetic diet.
