Here’s the avatar you’ll see on each post for Tour Stops! Thanks again to Lisa of Lime in the Coconut for designing this!
I loved this recipe that Joelen of Joelen’s Culinary Adventures shared with me as one of her favorites. For such a great taste it was amazingly easy. And considering the fact that I don’t totally love Asian food, I really enjoyed eating this. WH was excited about it too and I will definitely be making this again. I divided the recipe for the 2 of us and omitted one ingredient, but overall I stayed true to the original recipe.
Here’s why Joelen chose this recipe as one of her favorites:
“As an avid lover of Asian cuisine, my favorite Chinese dish is Mongolian Beef. The very first time I learned how to make it was as a child watching the television show, Reading Rainbow. My parents made their own version so I learned a version that appealed to me.”
- 1 bunch green onion, cut in 1 inch pieces
- 1/2 lb lean beef, sliced thin
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- (1/4 cup oyster sauce — I omitted this)
- Season sliced beef with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.
- Sprinkle cornstarch over beef and toss to coat. Set aside.
- In hot pan saute garlic and onion in cooking oil until softened.
- Add meat and brown.
- Add (oyster sauce and) soy sauce; stir to coat.
- Just before serving, add green onions and toss.
