Spicy Orange Beef Stir Fry

Whats for dinner? BEEF! With an Asian flare!  Who doesn’t love a sticky, saucy stir fry with veggies and rice?  Here’s my version of orange beef stir fry blending multiple recipes and adding my own touch.  Here’s what you’re going to need.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound sirloin or flank steak
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup fresh broccoli
  • 1 cup fresh green bell pepper
  • 3-4 green onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2-3 Thai red peppers or 1/2 red pepper flakes
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon seasame oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • Seasame seeds

Start by slicing your beef against the grain in thin 1/2″ strips.  Diagonally cut your green onions and bell pepper into strips.  Cut your broccoli into florets and mince your garlic.  You should have something that looks like this.

Combine your beef and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and mix to coat.  Beat two eggs in a separate bowl and set aside. Place one tablespoon of olive oil into a hot pan and sauté the red peppers or pepper flakes, garlic for 2-3 minutes and fragrant, add the orange juice, brown sugar, soy sauce and water mix well and bring to a slight boil for 2-3 minutes, set aside and keep warm.

Dredge steak in cornstarch and flour mixture and dip into the beaten eggs.  Let excess drip off and place into a heated pan with butter and olive oil over medium heat.  Work in batches to crisp and brown.  Remove from heat and keep warm.

In the same pan add 1 teaspoon seasame oil and 2 tablespoons olive oil  and sauté the broccoli and green peppers until slightly tender (not mushy) add green onions and sauté for another 2 minutes.  (Note: I add a couple tablespoons of water to help the sauté process)

Place beef back in the pan with the veggies and add the orange sauce and bring to a boil.  If you want a thicker sauce, combine 2 tablespoons of cornstarch mixed with water and add to the sauce and continue to cook until thick.  Serve over rice and top with sesame seeds.

  1. Hey…I wonder if it would be a good idea to try recipes from cool vintage cookbooks you find and spotlighting the results? It would connect thrift shopping with Chef Jeff’s cooking prowess. It would also be fun to rediscover some dated but fantastic recipes.
