Tips to make easy Mongolian beef :

  • Slicing the meat- A great way to get thinly sliced beef is by having the meat partially frozen when you cut it. That way it doesn't slide around and you achieve super thin slices.
  • Cook in batches- In order to get nice and crispy pieces of cooked beef, don't overcrowd the wok. Cook the beef in batches. Overcrowding will cause a lot of liquid to collect and result in mushy grey looking beef.
  • Use dark brown sugar- This will give the beef sauce a deeper and bolder flavor.
  • Make it ahead of time- you can chop up all the veggies and make the sauce in advance, that way when dinner time rolls around all you need to do is cook the meat and vegetables and add in the sauce.
