PF Chang's Copycat Mongolian Beef

PF Chang's Mongolian Beef - ButterYum

The closest PF Chang's restaurant is more than an hour away so I haven't had the pleasure of eating their food in person, but I've seen this copycat recipe on a number of blogs so I thought I'd give it a try.  So glad I did - we loved it.

In a large skillet, combine the first six ingredients.

Simmer over medium high heat until the mixture thickens.

Turn off the hat and reserve until later.

Toss the steak strips with cornstarch and let them rest until the oil heats up.

Fry the steak strips in batches until the edges turn brown.

It's not necessary to cook the steak completely at this point.

Drain steak strips on paper towels.

Return sauce to heat; add steak strips and stir for several minutes until cooked through.

Add sliced scallions and serve.

  4. In the meantime, heat 1 cup vegetable oil in a deep skillet or saucepan.
