I had to google to find out whether Mongolia was part of China. YES, i was that clueless.
Well, turned out that Mongolia is NOT part of China.
Well Chinese or not, this Mongolian Beef dish turned out delicious. It made a nice weekday dinner for our Chinese family. :)
Mongolian Beef with Scallions
Recipe adapted from Rasa Malaysia
1 tablespoon oil
100 grams beef tenderloin, thinly sliced
1 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 inch peeled ginger, thinly sliced
1stalk scallions, cut into 2-inch strips
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon Chinese rice wine or Shaoxing wine
1 teaspoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4teaspoon dark soy sauce
ground white pepper
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 tablespoon sugar or to taste

In a bowl, mix the ingredients for the marinade and marinate the beef slices for 30 minutes. Heat up a wok with 1 tablespoon of oil and stir-fry the marinated beef until they are half done. Dish out and set aside on a plate.
In the same wok, heat up the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and stir-fry the garlic and ginger until aromatic. Add the beef back into the wok and then the sauce. Continue to stir-fry until the beef slices are almost done, then add the scallions. Stir till the scallions are somewhat wilted and coated with the sauce. Serve hot with steamed rice.
