Dukan Mongolian Beef

Mongolian Beef

This is a schedule post...we are on the road again!  It may take us a while to respond to comments...thank you!

We loved this recipe!

We'll probably try it with chicken since the beef was a bit dry and we're trying not to eat beef.  This is another recipe from our archives...just didn't have the energy to post it.

We love cooking Chinese stir fry type of dishes...they are flavorful and cook up pretty quickly.   We had this during Cruise even though it has a small amount of oyster sauce and sesame's up to you.  We didn't experience any weight gain from eating it.

Serves 2 (he had red rice with his and I had mine plain)
Prep Time: 10-15 minutes, plus 30 minutes marinating time
Cook Time: Just a few minutes

1 lb. lean beef, sliced into small pieces
2 stalks of green onion, chopped (or sliced)
1 inch ginger, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced

1 t. cornstarch
1 t. soy sauce
1 T. water
1 t. Chinese rice wine (Shaoxing)

2 t. oyster sauce
2 T. low sodium soy sauce (we used 1 1/2 T. plus 1/2 T. water)
2 dashes pepper
1/4 t. sesame oil
1 T. natural sweetener or to taste (we used Xylitol)

Marinate beef for 30 minutes.  Heat up wok with a small amount of olive oil.  Stir fry beef until halfway done.  Remove beef from wok and set aside.  Add more olive oil if needed, saute garlic and ginger until fragrant (a minute or two).  Add beef back to wok, then sauce and stir fry until beef is almost done, then add green onions.  Stir a couple more times and serve.

Enjoy...we sure did!
