Asian food just like all other dishes is one you get a craving for every now and then, yet you wouldn’t always find that 100% satisfactory dish that would tackle that taste bud which bugged you in the first place, yet you would eat and leave full (not happy full but stomach filled up). I do enjoy my meat dishes and this Mongolian beef is one I have been craving for a while. In specific a decent version of it so what is better than making what you want by your own hands? Nothing beats that…
To make a lovely Mongolian dish you would need:
– Tender Beef Steak (Cut Into Strips)
– White Flour Mixed With Corn Flour (For Coating The Beef)
– 3 Tsp Thai 7 Spice Seasoning Mix (Click Here To See What Could Be In There)
Sauce would need:
– 1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
– 2 Garlic Cloves (Very Fine Chopping)
– 1 Tsp Fresh/Dried Ginger
– 1 Red Chili (Seeded & Chopped)
– 1/4 Cup Of Rice Vinegar
– 3 Tbsp Soy Sauce
– 1 Tbsp Oyster Sauce
– 50 Ml Beef/Vegetables Stock
Mixed veggies are optional with this dish you can just add the spring onions and you are good to go but I love my vegetables, hence:
– 1 Clove Garlic
– 1/2 Tsp Fresh Ginger
– 1/2 Fresh Red Chili (Seeded & Chopped)
– 1 Colored Pepper (Chopped Into Strips)
– 1 Onion (Chopped Into Strips)
Add the flour and corn flour to a large bowl, add the Thai 7 spice mixture and mix, coat the beef in the mixture and set aside for a bit. Preheat your oil in a flat pan sear your beef and make sure it’s cooked to your liking then set on top of paper towels to absorb extra oil.
To prepare the sauce now you would need a medium size frying pan and add the ginger, chili and garlic to fry for a minute. Add the rice vinegar and let it reduce for a bit. You can then add the rest of the ingredients, mix well and simmer for a couple of min and pour into a bowl for later.
Toss some garlic, ginger, and add your vegetables to the mix to saute for 5 minutes and you can also add a bit of the sauce to coat them with it. You bring all your items together into a wok and warm them up.
I love serving this dish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and a side of steamed rice to give the chance to enjoy the intense taste of the Mongolian beef.
Loving Wishes To You All
