Mongolian Beef is a great way to use up leftover pieces of beef from a roast or to cook cuts of beef that may not be as tender as you would prefer.   You can also use it as a way to use up leftover vegetables like onions, mushrooms, broccoli, or cauliflower.  I generally add a bag of stir fry vegetables when I don’t have leftover vegetables to use.

  • 8 oz beef sliced into thin strips
  • 1 bag of stir fry vegetables
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 small onion sliced in strips or use leeks or scallions if you prefer
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced or chopped thinly
  • Marinade:
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or to taste
  • Salt to taste


  1. Marinate the beef with the seasonings for 30 minutes. Heat up a pan with 1 tablespoon of oil and stir-fry the marinated beef until they are half-done. Remove from pan and set aside.
  2. Heat up another 1 tablespoon of oil and saute the garlic and ginger until soft. Add the beef back into the pan and then add the sauce. Continue to stir-fry until the beef is almost done. Add the vegetables and cook until done.
  3. **Note - My kids don't like pieces of ginger so I add a bit of powdered to the seasonings instead.**
