  • Which steak should be used for Mongolian beef?

    We recommend using flank steak when making Mongolian beef. You can also use skirt steak. Each should be sliced ​​thinly against the grain. This cut will cook quickly and absorb the flavors of the marinade. You can also use traditional steak cuts, such as sirloin, ribeye, or strip steak.

  • What does diced meat mean?

    When you look at a piece of beef, you can see the lines in the muscle, called grain. This grain is especially easy to see in cuts of beef like flank steak. The grain provides a natural breaking point in the meat. Slicing against the grain means cutting the meat perpendicular to these lines. This will provide the maximum number of breaking points in the meat, giving you a cut of beef that is soft and easy to chew. If you cut the meat parallel to the grain, you won’t have those natural breaking points in the meat, which means you’ll end up with a tough, chewy piece of meat.
