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.

Ingredients

1 lb. sirloin or flank steak
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 egg white
1 tbsp. cornstarch

In an interview with Bon Appetit magazine, Victor Clay, a line cook at Nobu Dallas in Texas, reveals his two simple tricks to prep an average of 15 to 20 shrimp per minute.

First, use kitchen shears to split the back of the shrimp. Then, before removing the vein, run the shrimp under cold water, which will loosen the vein. This cuts down on cleaning time, and prevents cooks from having to soak and rinse the shrimp afterward.

Stealth health is so 1998. When author Evelyn Tribole’s original book on sneaking healthy add-ons into meals was published nearly 20 years ago, there may have been a genuine nutrition need to fill. But as today’s diners are increasingly requesting more produce at the center of the plate, another need has taken the lead: a desire for creativity. Here’s how operators are openly blending meat with other ingredients—or eliminating animal products entirely—to take protein to another level.
