Mongolian Sauce

This sauce was originally made for our Beef Egg Rolls recipe, but I have since created a Mongolian chicken recipe for you all as well. This sauce is just that good!

The first time I had this sauce was at a popular Asian restaurant called P.F. Changs.

Their egg rolls are great, but I didn’t fancy the sauce that came with the egg rolls. A friend of mine was joining me and recommended the Mongolian sauce.

She said that she always asks for this sauce when she eats at the restaurant and raved about how good it was.

Well she was absolutely right. The sauce is somewhat salty, yet sweet and full of flavor so that was right up my alley.

So I had to do what everybody does and go on the restaurant website and Pinterest to find out what ingredients were this sauce.

To my surprise, it was much simpler than I thought. And of course, I had to put my own spin on this recipe. I have tested this recipe with all light brown sugar, all dark brown sugar and half and half.

It is great either way so use what you have. Because the sauce can be on the saltier side you want to add water.

Even with using light soy sauce, the sauce is still salty. That is part of what makes it so good, but of course you want the right balance of salt.

Taste the sauce prior to removing from the heat. Add more water a little at a time if needed. Depending on your desired thickness, you may need to add more flour or cornstarch as well.

I have used flour and cornstarch for the sauce. They can both be used as thickeners and both get the job done so I would suggest using what you have on hand.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and have the opportunity to try the sauce with the Beef Egg Rolls and/or Mongolian chicken!

    Can’t believe there’s no rating for this recipe. I’ve done this recipe twice already and will be making my 3rd batch today. It’s super yum and easy. I took the advice of Chris, I sautéed the ginger first. AND i used sesame oil instead of olive oil. It gives that extra asian taste. thanks for sharing this recipe. ❤️

    • Thank you so much! I will try making it with the fresh ginger next time. I bet that was delicious. The sesame oil sounds great as well! So glad you have been enjoying the recipe.

    How many days can we store it in a refrigerator and use it?

    100 percent yum! Easy quick delicious. I changed the ratios according to my taste but the basic concept is solid. 1 tip. I find gently simmering the ginger in the oil for 3 to 4 minutes first gives a more complex flavor.

  4. This sounds absolutely yummy!
