Our recipe imitates the flavors and textures of a fan favorite, yet skips the calories.

You probably know PF Chang’s for its amazing sit-down Asian food meals. Unfortunately, you also know the high prices that go along with it. Still, most of us can’t resist the delicious, crispy pieces of beef coated in a sweet and savory sauce found in their Mongolian Beef dish. So, we skinnied up the recipe! Our Mongolian Beef PF Chang’s Style recipe imitates the flavors and textures of a fan favorite, yet skips the calories. We used just two tablespoons of oil and plenty of seasoning to make this dish taste just as good as the original without all the salt and frying oil.

You can add more veggies if you like and enjoy over brown rice or quinoa for a restaurant quality meal at home!

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 4 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1 pound sirloin tip steak sliced into strips
  • 1/2 cup carrot shredded
  • 1 yellow onion small, sliced into strips
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce or tamari, low-sodium
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes more if desired
  • 2 scallions sliced
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro fresh, chopped


  • In sauté pan or wok, heat sesame oil on medium-low heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Turn heat up to medium-high and add steak. Cook until meat begins to brown and pink begins to disappear. Drain off any excess fat.
