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
1⁄4 tsp. salt

2 tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
