copycat pf changs mongolian beef yummy


We love going to PF Changs, but what we don’t love are the prices so we decided

to try replicating their Mongolian Beef recipe, which is my favorite thing there!

We could not believe how AMAZING it turned out.


we will be making this quite often!!

It was easy to put together, and cost under $10 to feed three people.  Give it a try ~ I just know you will LOVE it as much as the real thing!

This is just as good, if not better, than the real thing!!

  1. 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  2. 1/2 teaspoon ginger, minced (I used the powder from a jar, not fresh ginger)
  3. 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  4. 1/2 cup soy sauce
  5. 1/2 cup water
  6. 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  7. Vegetable oil, for frying (approx. 1 cup)
  8. 1 lb flank steak
  9. 1/4 cup cornstarch
  10. 2 large green onions, sliced on the diagonal into one-inch lengths
  11. 1-2 cups of rice, prepared, to serve on the side
  1. 1. Make the Sauce: Heat 2 tsp. oil over medium/low heat. DO NOT let the oil get too hot. Add the garlic and ginger to the pan, then add the soy sauce and water before the garlic scorches. Add the brown sugar, raise the heat to medium, and boil for 3-5 minutes until it begins to thicken. Remove from heat.
  2. 2. Cut the flank steak against the grain into 1/4" bite sized slices. Dip the steak in cornstarch and apply a thin coating of corn starch to each side of the meat (I put it in a bowl and shook it to coat and mix it thoroughly). Let the beef sit for about 10 minutes until the cornstarch is absorbed into the meat.
  3. 3. Using a skillet or wok heat about 1 cup of oil until it's hot, (you will want the beef to be mostly covered with oil during this step). Saute the beef for approximately 2-3 minutes, or until it cooks evenly and begins to darken on the edges. (Don't worry, the beef will go back on the heat and cook more later). I did NOT cook all of the beef at once. I cooked about 10-12 pieces at a time, then placed it on to paper towels until all of the meat was cooked.
  4. 4. Pour out the remaining oil from the skillet, dump ALL of the meat back in the pan, and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  5. 5. Add the sauce and cook for one minute while stirring continuously.
  6. 6. Add the green onions.
  7. 7. Cook for one additional minute, then remove the beef and onions with tongs or a slotted spoon on to a serving plate. (Just leave the excess sauce behind in the pan).
  8. 8. Serve with a side of rice, and ENJOY!!
