Ready In:




  • 1. Heat oil in a sauté pan. Add the beef and cook for 30-60 seconds or until cooked.
  • -Beef should be lightly browned around the edges and gray throughout the rest of the surface.
  • 2. Add your garlic and toss.
  • 3. Add the rice wine, soy sauce, and sugar. Bring to a boil.
  • 4. Cook and reduce the sauce around the beef until all sauce has caramelized onto the beef.
  • -The sauté pan should be "dry" (no flowing sauce) before proceeding onto the next step.
  • 5. Add the green onion sticks and toss to incorporate into the beef.
  • A few tosses are all that are needed; do not wilt the green onion sticks!
  • 6. Finish with sesame oil.
  • 7. Place on a plate over cooked rice and enjoy!

Questions & Replies

  1. the website on PF changs website that supposedly contains the real recipe which is provided by the author of this recipe doesn't actually show up...says the page can't be found


  1. This was great. I did modify it some. I added sesame oil (1/4 c) and I added some vegies (broccoli, onions, and jalapenos). I used flank steak cut across the grain, so it was fall apart tender after frying it up without marination. We will make this again and again.
  2. Whether this recipe tastes good or not, I can't say because I have not tried it. But I want to correct the misimpression given by the previous reviewer. This IS the Mongolian Beef recipe from P.F.Chang's website. However, the recipe as published there is gluten-free, and uses gluten-free soy sauce, so it may not be the version that is served in the restaurant.
  3. I just ate the mongolian beef at PF Chang's and I asked the server what type of beef they used. She told me it was flank steak that they marinated and that is what made it so tender. It is very yummy and I would love to be able to make it at home.
  4. I just made it and all my family said It just taste like the one at P.F. Chang's. Thanks!
  5. We really enjoyed this. I always order the gluten free version when eating at PF Chang's because of my Celiac's, so this was perfect. I couldn't find any rice wine or soy oil at my grocery store, so I substituted white wine and vegetable oil. I also didn't use beef tenderloin because it was too expensive, so I bought sirloin instead, but that may have been a mistake because it was a bit tough. I added about 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes to the soy sauce mixture because my boyfriend likes his food spicy. I do want to note that this recipe makes two kind of small/medium servings or one very large serving, so if you're feeding more than two or your husband likes large servings, double or triple the recipe and make plenty of vegetables to supplement the main course. I will definitely keep this recipe saved, and will be making it again. VERY quick and easy, and it tastes great.


  1. Holy cow! If I was going to make this I certainly wouldn't fork out for beef tenderloin and then cover up the taste with a lot of sauce! Flank steak is the way to go I'd say. I'm sure it's very tasty though and would like to try it soon,
