What’s the best beef to use?

I like to use flank steak for this recipe as it doesn’t require a long marinade time and it’s super quick to cook. Skirt steak would also work well. If you have thicker steaks, like sirloin, you can pound them thin before cutting and marinading.

Can you add other veggies?

Yes, it’s super easy to add additional veggies to this recipe. Feel free to add in some diced bell pepper or julienne carrots for additional texture and flavor. Just add them to the skillet to the same time as the broccoli.

What do you serve it with?

This Mongolian beef and broccoli is great to serve over rice, Jasmine and Basmati both work well. I like to garnish it with some sesame seeds too, and add some sliced scallions for some freshness and color.

Tips!

  • Make this recipe gluten-free by using tamari instead of soy sauce.
  • Allow one hour to marinate the beef. It can be done in half and hour but will have slightly less flavor. It can be marinated for up to 4 hours.
  • Leftovers will keep well for up to 4 days and can be reheated in the skillet to serve.
