PF CHANGS MONGOLIAN BEEF

THE BEEF:
1 pound Flank Steak
1 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 large green onions

THE SAUCE:
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water

3/4 cup dark brown sugar

 >> Beef lovers go crazy over this one at the restaurant. Flank steak is cut into bite sized chunks against the grain, then it's lightly dusted with potato starch (in our case we'll use cornstarch), flash-fried in oil, and doused with an amazing sweet soy garlic sauce. The beef comes out tender as can be, and the flavors rock your taste buds. I designed this recipe to use a wok, but if you don't have one a skillet will suffice (you may need to add more oil to the pan to cover the beef in the flash-frying step). P. F. Chang's secret sauce is what makes this dish so good, and it's versatile.
 >> Make the sauce by heating 2 teaspoons of vegetable in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Don't get the oil too hot or you'll get a major spatter when adding the other liquids. Add ginger and garlic to the pan and quickly add the soy sauce and water before the garlic scorches. Dissolve the brown sugar in the sauce, then raise the heat to about medium and boil the sauce for 3 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Remove it from the heat.
 >> Slice the Flank Steak against the grain into 1/2" thick bite size slices. Tilt the blade of your knife at about a 45 degree angle to the top of the steak so that you get wider cuts.
 >> Dip the steak pieces into the cornstarch to apply a very thin dusting to both sides of each piece of beef. Let the beef sit for about 10 minutes so that the cornstarch sticks.
 >> As the beef sits, heat up one cup of oil in a wok (you may also use a skillet for this step as long as the Steak will be mostly covered with oil). Heat the oil over medium heat until it's nice and hot, but not smoking. Add the Steak to the oil and sauté for just 2 minutes, or until the beef just begins to darken on the edges. You don't need a thorough cooking here since the Steak is going to go back on the heat later. Stir the Steak around a little so that it cooks evenly. After a couple minutes, use a large slotted spoon or a spider to take the Steak out and onto paper towels, then pour the oil out of the wok or skillet. Put the pan back over the heat, dump the Steak back into it and simmer for one minute. Add the sauce, cook for one minute while stirring, then add all the green onions. Cook for one more minute, then remove the Steak and onions with tongs or a slotted spoon to a serving plate. Leave the excess sauce behind in the pan.

The Original Mongolian Diet

The meat dependent diet arises from the need for hearty food to stave off the cold and long winters. Traditionally nomadic herders, Mongolians have for centuries been dependent on mostly animal products for their dietary staples.
Mongolians traditionally have turned to foods that are high in protein and minerals, relying less on more seasonable foods like vegetables and fruits. This means a diet heavy on meat and dairy products, the latter when sour in the summer time thought to clean the stomach. It isn't just about meat though. Mongolians do also eat cereal, barley and natural fruits and plants native to the country.
