Thank you. Flank steak would work really good. 2 ways to keep the beef tender. You could do the velveting meathod. Or just sear on both sides in a really hot pan. and remove and add back in at the end.

Welcome to DC, yogababe. Try our site's search function, within a discussion thread, for the term "velveting" to get that soft chinese stir fry tenderness out of beef.
Jalapenos would work but really its up to your heat level.

Msmofet, it's basically a quick marinade to coat the beef, and then a quick flash in the pan... You would then remove it, finish preparing your dish, and add the beef in at the last minute...

I am worried about the cut of beef to use. I have so called "Beef chuck country style ribs boneless" as well as beef back ribs; both are frozen. The girl I am cooking for is kinda paricular about meat so wondering if this will mess up the recipe...

Also they are frozen can I defrost them, marinate overnight and place on the grill? Most recipes call for stir frying this but Ive seen them grill it in a real korean restaurant.

Thanks all..

The girl in this video nearly drives me up a wall for some reason, but this is a very good tutorial on how to "velvet" chicken, or beef for that matter.

JP, You can, but it will not be Mongolian beef, if you grill the meat. Use chuck. Ribs are good for slow long cooking. This is cooked really fast. The best part would be the flank. But chuk will do if you sliced thin, but then I am not sure how you would grill it...

WOW!! I have always done that! I never knew that that was a "method" that had a special name! LOL

I marinade in soy sauce, oil, ginger, garlic, cornstarch and sometimes wine or rice wine vinegar.

ok I am going to go with the beef chuck. But what about marinating? All these recipes usually do it for a short time. Are there any issues if I do it over night? Like I dont think I'd use vinegar..why no overnight?

If you use flank steak the other thing you need to do is be sure you cut it correctly.

Lay the steak out so that the grain of the meat is running left-to-right. Take your knife and hold it at @ a 45 degree angle and slice off thin pieces of the steak.
