I recenlty discovered P.F. Changs and constantly have a craving for their Mongolian Beef. I finally decided to make my own Mongolian Beef at home. It was actually quicker and easier than I thought it would be and the results were delicious!
Recipe slightly adapted from Spend with Pennies

- 1/2 teaspoon ginger minced
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup pack brown sugar
- 1 lb Flank steak
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 1/2 onion sliced
- 2 green onion sliced
Heat 2 tsp oil in pan over med-low heat. Add onion, ginger and garlic sauté for 2 minute. Add soy sauce, brown sugar and water and bring to boil. let boil for 4 minutes then set aside.
Slice flank steak into 1/4 inch slices and toss with corn starch. Place 1 tablespoon of oil in pan, cook meat (med/high heat) in small batches (about 2 minutes per batch). Add another tablespoon of oil if necessary to cook remaining meat. The meat will only be cook partially it will finish cooking when combined with the sauce.
