Fast & Easy Dinner: Orange Beef Stir-Fry

Fast & Easy Dinner: Orange Beef Stir-Fry

Never underestimate the extreme flavor power of fresh squeezed citrus juice. The acidity stops foods from oxidizing and adds a bright unprocessed taste to quick fix foods. The juice from one orange is used to jazz up a simple beef stir-fry. Stir-frys are excellent because they can be made rapidly and provide a mixture of tender meat, crisp vegetables, and sticky rice. You'll give Rachael Ray a run for her money when you make this savory stir-fry in under thirty minutes or less so get the recipe now and

Orange Beef Stir-Fry
From Everyday Food magazine

1 cup long-grain white rice
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice, (from 1 orange)
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon light-brown sugar
1 pound top or bottom round steak, cut into strips, 2 inches long and 1/4 inch thick
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 (1 pound) broccoli, florets broken into small pieces (reserve stalks for another use)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 red bell pepper, (ribs and seeds removed), cut into strips, 2 inches long and 1/4 inch wide

  1. Cook rice according to package instructions; set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl or liquid-measuring cup, combine orange juice, vinegar, soy sauce, and sugar; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, toss beef with cornstarch; season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  4. In a large skillet, combine broccoli with 1 cup water; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high; cook, partially covered, until broccoli is bright green and crisp-tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Discard any water in skillet; wipe with paper towel.
  5. In same skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over high. When pan is very hot, add half the beef; cook until browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer beef to plate with broccoli. Repeat with remaining oil and remaining beef, but leave beef in skillet.
  6. Return reserved beef and broccoli to skillet; add orange-juice mixture and bell pepper.
  7. Continue cooking over high heat until sauce thickens, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve over rice.

Serves 4.

I don't like oranges or anything citrus-y, but for some reason, I love orange chicken or beef stir fry. Thanks for the recipe!

Sounds super yummy! I think I'll try it and add in a dash of sesame oil! That stuff gives such a delightful taste to anything and I think it would compliment this dish nicely!
