Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Peel, then finely grate ginger. Heat a medium pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then half the ginger. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Add rice and 2 1/2 cups water. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cook, still covered, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.
While rice cooks, core, cut peppers into 1/4-inch pieces. Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Thinly slice green onions. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Pat beef dry with paper towels, then cut larger pieces in half. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then half the peppers and half the broccoli. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Transfer to a plate, then repeat with another 1 tbsp oil and remaining veggies.
When all veggies are done, using the same pan, add 1/2 tbsp oil, then half the beef. Cook, stirring occasionally, until cooked through, 3-5 min. Whisk together 1 cup water, cornstarch, rice vinegar, hoisin-soy sauce and 2 tsp sugar in a medium bowl. Set aside. When first batch of beef is done, transfer to a plate, then repeat with another 1/2 tbsp oil and remaining beef.
Add garlic, all beef, all veggies and remaining ginger to the same pan. Stir together, until fragrant, 1-2 min. Add sauce from the medium bowl. Cook, stirring often, until sauce slightly thickens and veggies are coated, 2-3 min.
Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in half the green onions and season with salt. Divide rice and Mongolian beef between bowls. Spoon any remaining sauce from the pan over beef. Sprinkle over remaining green onions.
