• Orange Beef

    Date: 2011.04.12 | Category: recipes | Tags: ,

    We had a yummy orange beef for dinner the other night.  Seriously yummy.  I adapted this from a recipe on cooks.com.  When I make this again I think I’m going to substitute Splenda for the sugar, but otherwise- super yum.  Can you tell we enjoyed this?  I just said yum or yummy 3 times!

    1.5 pounds cubed beef
    Flour for dredging
    2 TBS oil
    Salt and pepper

    1 TBS oil
    2 cloves minced garlic
    1/2 cup Teriyaki sauce
    1/4 cup Soy sauce
    1 TBS flour or cornstarch
    Juice of one orange
    Zest of 1/2 orange
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 can bamboo shoots
    2 cups veggies- I used green beans and carrots, but you can use what you like and have on hand!
    Pepper to taste

    Dredge the beef in flour, season to taste and cook in oil.  Remove beef from pan.

    Add more oil to pan and saute garlic.  Add flour and continue stirring until cooked.  Stir in sauces, juice, zest and sugar.  Continue stirring until sauce comes to a boil.  Add veggies and continue cooking until sauce thickens and veggies are starting to soften.  Return meat to the pan and heat through before serving over rice.
