Mongolian Beef

I have a confession to make.
I really don't like red meat. I don't hate it..but I don't technically enjoy it. Though I'm sure you figured that out with all my chicken posts. =D
But when I DO eat red meat, it's usually roast or fajitas or this style. Asian inspired.

This stuff was SPICY. So tone down the peppers if you want. I like my mouth to burn, so I kept the pepper count high. 

Mongolian Beef

2 pounds boneless sirloin tip roast
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoons crushed red pepper
3 whole dried red chile pepper
1/4 cup oil
2 bunches green onions, cut into pieces

Slice the roast into strips, and set aside. Combine well the soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, cornstarch, brown sugar, crushed red pepper and whole chile peppers. Place beef in the mixture and coat well. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer...I did several hours. 
In a skillet or wok, heat 1/4 cup of oil over medium high heat. Add beef mixture and saute for 5 minutes, or until the beef is thoroughly cooked. Put green onions to the pan and saute for 30 seconds more, or until heated through.Serve over Asian noodles. Like these.........

The complete meal!

See? I can make red meat ;-)


  1. yummy.... this household loves red meat.. In fact we are not so much into chicken, well Tim isn't tho I have a few recipes that he enjoys.. Guess I just have learned what he probably will or won't like... This recipe I will have to try someday soon! :)

  2. Goody!! I was hoping you were gonna post this! You need to post your posts on FB so I see them more often. :D

  3. haha I've a feeling people get sick of me sharing =D

    But this stuff is pretty good!

  4. Bookmarked this sometime ago. I was looking for a different beef recipe so I tried this tonight. I do not like hot, no burn for me so I reduced the pepper to just the 1 tsp. of crushed red. It was perfect for me but Jeff said he didn't even know it was hot but he thought it was really good so will be making it again. Plus broccoli is always a hit so had that fresh steamed too. Thanks.

  5. I'm so glad to know you guys enjoyed it!
