The dish uses inexpensive ingredients to offer big flavor in a small amount of time.
In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and broth until smooth. Stir in the soy sauce, hoisin sauce and sesame oil; set aside.
In a large nonstick skillet or wok, stir-fry beef in 1-1/2 teaspoons hot olive oil until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
In the same skillet, stir-fry the onions in remaining olive oil for 2-3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir cornstarch mixture and add to the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
Reduce heat; add beef and heat through. Serve over rice.
This dish cooked up very fast and the flavor was wonderful.
There is additional broth so we put it on top of Coconut Rice.

dmcmil4911 2y agoGood, easy and quick
jevarner 2y agoGood but not great. I added some brown sugar and that helped.
cristinakj 3y agoBecause of some of the reviews, I was a little leery about this recipe. But my boyfriend's favorite Asian dish is the Mongolian beef so I decided I would give it a try. But after reading some of the reviews I decided to do a little research myself. What I discovered was that Mongolian beef is actually supposed to be a spicy food and so I was confused as to why there was no spice in this recipe. I followed the recipe directions pretty much but I did take the advice of another reviewer and marinated beef in Soy sauce, garlic, rice vinegar, hoisin sauce, a little ginger, and a WHOLE lot of crushed red pepper and cayenne. I also added red pepper relish to make it spicy, plus cayenne and crushed red pepper to the sauce. Also per one of the other reviewers and because of some of the research I did, I added approximately 1/4 cup of brown sugar to the sauce before I cooked it. In the end it came out absolutely fantastic I served it over white rice and it was delicious. One more thing: I know it's not normal and usual to the dish, but I had extra mushrooms to get rid of, so I added them to the recipe. It worked really well.

melaniewilkersonwilliams 3y agoSuper easy! Tastes yummy! We add steamed broccoli to the bed of rice before adding the beef mixture. We have made this a couple of times.,,,each a success!
itsacube 3y agoIt has a pretty good taste. I would try this again for sure.
andreskris 3y agoIt needs a tablespoonful of brown sugar to cancel out the saltiness.
rsearer 3y agoUsed a low sodium soy sauce, garlic, and ginger powder for marinade. Turned out great
dbwiant 3y agoWith the addition of heat and marinated beef this is well received
