Cooking Instructions

Skip ordering takeout and make this Grilled Mongolian Beef right at home. This Chinese-American dish is traditionally made as a simple stir fry with thin slices of beef simmered in a soy, brown sugar, hoisin, garlic and ginger sauce. The brown sugar caramelizes in the soy to make a sticky, mouthwatering sauce that coats the beef. In this easy grilled version, the beef is marinated then grilled and tossed in the sauce that’s perfect served over white rice.
