Mongolian Beef

It’s been fun experimenting with Asian cooking lately.
I have been intimidated by it for so long, yet it is one of our favorite foods so I would so love to be able to eat it more often without feeling guilty about getting take out all the time.

Mongolian Beef

I recently found this recipe on Joelen’s Culinary Adventures. This blog is full of good stuff, there is so much to read and look through, I just love it!!

Joelen’s Mongolian Beef recipe is so easy to make…I had a lean sirloin steak in the freezer and sliced it up very thin. I served it with stir fried broccoli and snap peas and brown rice. This meal was perfect for a weeknight and made plenty for leftovers for lunch the next day.

  1. This looks so fresh, healthy and tasty! I’m allergic to seafood. Do you think I could just leave out the oyster sauce, or subtitute something?

    I left some awards for you on my blog.

  2. I just started cooking with oyster sauce so no substitute came to mind, but I found this thread on recipezaar that might be helpful!

    If anyone knows a good oyster sauce substitute please share!

  3. Looks good! I haven’t made any asian stuff in a while, I need to bust out my wok. I have awesome chicken with cashews and lo mein recipes.

  4. i don’t cook very often, but this recipe is pretty tasty and easy enough for me to make. i want to try your recipe. it looks great!

    Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry with Peanut Noodles
    6 ounces peanut butter
    6 ounces hot water
    1 teaspoon chili flakes
    2 teaspoons sesame oil
    8 tablespoons soy sauce
    1 box spaghetti
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    12 ounces beef, sliced on the bias
    1 head broccoli
    4 tablespoons sweet and sour sauce

    In a bowl combine the peanut butter, water, chili flakes, sesame oil, and 4 tablespoons of soy sauce. Mix well. Boil spaghetti and drain. Toss the spaghetti with soy sauce and let stand 1/2 hour. Blanch and shuck the head of broccoli. Sauté in wok with sweet and sour sauce and the marinated beef. Serve when beef is cooked. Makes 4 servings.

  5. I made a mongolian beef last winter when we were reading about Ghengis Khan, and it was actually a similar recipe. I have yet to post my asian-inspired recipes on my blog but here’s my favorite one from my reference site (sorry, no picture yet):

  6. I always leave the Asian cooking to my hubby. His is always better than take out. Looks like you are doing a fantastic job as it looks delicious.

  7. I love asian cooking at home! Looks like it turned out really well! Yummy!

    I have a few- but this is a nice sweet one:

  8. Looks really delicious! I have a favorite Mongolian Beef recipe that I use, but am always willing to try a new one 🙂

  9. I do know a good subsitute!!! Last week I was reading Cooks Illustrated and soy sauce or even worschsire (what? no, I can’t spell that! haha) works as a perfect sub.

  10. This is one of my favorite dishes. I would second that soy sauce or even worschsire is an excellent substitute!!!!

    This looks fabulous Aggie!

  11. My hubby would love this. He always orders this type of dish when we eat out. It looks delicious.
    My fave stir fry that is so easy and super fast is:
    We make it a couple times a month and always take it to friends and neighbors. Plus, like all stir-fries it is so versatile, that you can use whatever veggies you have on hand.
    of course, the other fave is Pot Stickers:
    I make them at least once a month and freeze a bunch for my hubby. He loves them.
    oh, and that salad of Prudy’s in that same post is amazing!

  12. thats a great recipe…oyester sauce is something I use and love cooking with.
