These days I feel like a bit of an expert on what kids like and what kids don’t.  Mis hijos are some of the pickiest on the planet.  Getting proteins and vegetables in their diet is far from easy.  I am super conscious of how much good stuff actually gets eaten and cringe at the junk food they get away with.  Homeschooling them means we spend just about every waking hour together and I am constantly monitoring what they will actually eat during meals.  Enter Mongolian Beef, this is one of the rare options my children will have at one of our favorite restaurants.  So today I finally took on the challenge to create another meal to add to my repertoire.  I started with Kikkoman soy sauce because it goes perfectly and is a versatile ingredient for the main and side dish tonight.  Mongolian beef is a very sweet dish that lures my boys in and have them asking for seconds and thirds.

The Sauce:

You will need 2 tsps vegetable oil, 1/2 teaspoon ginger paste (found mine in the produce), tablespoon minced garlic, 1/2 cup Kikkoman  soy sauce, 1/2 cup water, 3/4 cup  brown sugar.

Heat vegetable oil on medium heat add in ginger paste and minced garlic.  Without letting it burn stir it around in the oil so that it starts crackling in the heat, 1 minute.

Add in water and Kikkoman soy sauce and mix around 2 minutes.  Next add in the brown sugar and mix it all together.  Brown sugar will start to dissolve, let it come to a boil.  Remove from heat and set sauce aside.  

Cooking Flank:

1.5 Cups vegetable oil, 1 – 2 lb flank steak, 1/2 cup cornstarch, green onion large sliced

Slice flank steak at 45 degree angle thin strips.

  1. This looks yummy! I like that it doesn’t have a ton of vegetables in it as my boys are so picky. I can add a few more to my plate to round out the meal. Thanks!
