Mongolian Beef w/Rice - Recipe

We love Chinese, Thai, and Indian!!!  The other day when I was visiting COAH Blog I checked out her recipes.  Came across her Mongolian Beef w/Rice and decided to give it a go.  Nathan ended up cooking that night but he said it was super easy to make.  While Gabriel and I say it is delish!!

(  ) are my/husband's notes

2 T. vegetable oil
-1 t. Ginger, minced (powder works just as well)
-2 T. Garlic, chopped
-1/2 c. Soy Sauce (we use low-sodium)
-1 c. Dark Brown Sugar (used light)
-1/2 c. vegetable oil
-1 lb. Flank Steak or Sirloin sliced thinly
-1/4 c. Cornstarch
-3 green onions sliced or 2 c. broccoli steamed (we only used the onions but I think to use both would be great)

-Heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil in skillet over medium high heat until hot.
-Add ginger and garlic and let sizzle for 30 seconds, then add soy sauce.
-Gradually add the brown sugar and let it dissolve while stirring.
-Let the sauce come to a boil, then simmer for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

-Cut the flank steak into thin strips against the grain. (Tip: Meat is easier to slice when it’s partially frozen. It will thaw quickly after sliced too!)
-Place meat and corn starch in a bag and shake to coat the meat.
-Let meat sit for 10 minutes, so the cornstarch sticks to the meat.

-Put 1/2 c. vegetable oil in a wok/ skillet and heat on medium-high until hot.
-Add the meat to the wok and brown for about 4-5 minutes.
-Remove the meat from the pan with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to drain.

-Clean the pan out and return meat to pan and cook on high for about 2 more minutes.
-Add the sauce to the pan and cook for another minute.
-Add the green onions or broccoli and cook for 1 minute longer.
-Remove from heat and serve with rice (Nathan mixed all of it together in the Wok and then served).

He loved it all but some of the meat was
too tough.  Make sure to buy quality beef!

beef, sauce, and rice all mixed together
