Mongolian beef is a dish served in Chinese-American and Chinese-Australian restaurants consisting of sliced beef, typically flank steak, and stir-fried with vegetables in a savory brown sauce, usually made with hoisin sauce, soy sauce, and chili peppers.
The beef is commonly paired with scallions or mixed vegetables and is often not spicy.
The dish is often served over steamed rice, or in the US, over crispy fried cellophane noodles.
