Easy Mongolian Beef has crazy tender beef with a crispy seared edge that gets coated in the most amazing sauce. This is way better than P.F. Changs!


  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • green onions sliced for garnish


  1. In a large ziplock bag add the sliced flank steak and cornstarch. Toss the beef to coat evenly. Heat a large skillet to high heat and add the vegetable oil. Once heated, add the steak in a single layer and cook on each side for about a minute until the edges just start to brown. Once the steak is cooked, remove and set aside on a plate.
  2. In a small mixing bowl combine soy sauce, brown sugar, water, ginger, and garlic. Add the sauce to the pan and bring to a boil. Add the steak to the sauce and allow the sauce to thicken for a couple of minutes. Toss with the chopped green onions and sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
