Mongolian Beef

Serves: 
4 servings

Though the name is somewhat a misnomer (none of the ingredients come from traditional Mongolian cuisine), this dish is still a customer favorite. This version features egg whites, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, chili paste, garlic, baby corn and green onions.
