Mongolian Green Beans

Mongolian Beef is one of my favorite things to order at P.F. Chang’s, but I still haven’t quite mastered making it at home.  I always seem to have trouble cooking with flank steak.  However, I have come up with a great way to serve green beans, using a Mongolian-esque sauce.  These are delicious, and I’m sure you could throw some chicken or shrimp in the sauce too.  I served these with Sticky Chicken and basmati rice.  Yes, it was a saucy meal, but I couldn’t make up my mind about which sauce was better.  They’re both delicious!

Mongolian Green Beans


  • 1/3 C soy sauce
  • 1/3 C brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger or minced ginger
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • fresh green beans

Combine all ingredients but green beans in a small bowl using a whisk.  Add to green beans in a large skillet and cook on medium heat until beans are done.

  1. I wonder if I could subsitute Splenda for the brown sugar? (I can’t eat sugar) I’m sure it wouldn’t taste as good, but we eat so many green beans that I’ll gladly try anything to liven up the dish!
    Since you mentioned PF Chang’s, which I LOVE, I posted a recipe on my private blog for PF Chang’s lettuce wraps – take a look if you’re interested. I’m sure you could improve the recipe! 🙂

  2. i am making these this week also! i plan on subbing the brown sugar with honey.

    Made these tonight and thought my husband would eat the whole thing by himself.  I did add half an onion to the beans because they seem to always be in this dish at the restaurant.  Will make often.  Thank you!
