This time of year it’s easy to feel like we are eating the same things over and over & it get’s boring. Try this wonderful orange beef stir fry to wake up your taste buds! Ordinarily for a Valentine’s Day dinner I think of seafood, but this is one beef dish that would be great for Valentine’s Day. The colors and flavors make it outstanding.
Here is the review that was most helpful:
“I omitted the orange peel, substituted 2 tsp of sesame oil for the 2 tbl vegetable oil, used 3 cloves of garlic, substituted 1 tsp candied ginger (minced) for the 1/2 tsp of powdered ginger, I used orange juice in place of the sherry, used “sweet orange marmalade,” and added 2 tsp brown sugar to the sauce. I marinated the beef in 1 cup of orange juice for several hours (this helped tenderize it). I drained the beef and then stir fried it in 1 tsp sesame oil. I removed the beef, drained out the juices, added another tsp of sesame oil to the pan and then stir fried red bell pepper (cut in strips), broccoli, and carrots (cut in strips) until just tender, then I added the garlic and ginger, stirred, then added the beef back to the pan. I immediately poured in the sauce. Just before removing from the heat, I added snow pea pods and green onions. I served it over brown rice. This was an awesome one dish meal. I used about 9 ounces of meat, so my version served two large portions.”
She said her husband kept raving about this dish through the whole meal. As with all stir fry recipes the key to easy cooking is to get everything prepared ahead of time. The first time you make this be sure to allow plenty of time for that and for the actual cooking time. If you master the technique, this could become your signature dish!
