Mongolian Beef

TIP: There are plenty of recipes for homemade Mongolian beef sauce available, but I find some of the ready-made sauces are just as good, inexpensive, and much more convenient. I prefer fresh garlic and ginger but those can also be purchased pre chopped for added convenience.

    While unit is preheating, prepare the steak. In a large bowl, place the steak, salt, and cornstarch and toss until evenly coated.
