I love this PF Chang’s Mongolian Beef. This simple copycat is so easy to make and tastes exactly like our favorite takeout!



½ c. vegetable oil

2 lbs NY strip steak (ribeye steak or flank steak)

½ c. cornstarch


4 cloves garlic (minced)

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 c. brown sugar

1 c. low-sodium soy sauce

2 tbsp ginger (minced)

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

3 green onions (thinly sliced)

1 c. water

1 tbsp rice wine vinegar

How to make PF Chang’s Mongolian Beef (Copycat Recipe)

Step 1: In the freezer, place the beef for about 15 minutes before starting to firm the beef up before slicing. Against the grain, slice the beef into thin, bite-sized strips (around 1/4-inch thickness).


Step 2: To a Ziploc bag, add the cornstarch followed by the meat. Seal the bag and shake until the meat is well coated in flour. Into a strainer or colander, pour the beef and shake the excess cornstarch off.

Step 3: Add 2 tablespoons of oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, water, rice wine vinegar, and red pepper flakes in a small saucepan. Stir well and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes over medium-high heat until the sauce has thickened. Remove from the heat and set aside when done.

Step 4: In the meantime, heat half a cup of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add some of the beef in a single layer in the skillet once the oil is hot and cook until no longer pink. Do this in batches to prevent overcrowding the pan. On a plate lined with a paper towel, transfer browned beef and cover with foil.

Step 5: To the skillet, place all the browned beef and pour the sauce over it. Stir well and continue to cook for a few minutes more.

Step 6: Remove from the heat when done and serve the Mongolian beef right away over rice garnished with some green onions. Enjoy!
