Ginger Orange Beef

Ginger Orange Beef

We love Chinese food at our house.  We have a lot of favorite recipes that I have developed after eating a dish at a restaurant and then coming home to try to replicate it.  Sometimes it is easy to copy, like this recipe, but sometimes it takes numerous tries before I come up that the recipe that is just right.  So here is one of the easiest recipes.

1 pound of top round steak

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 1/2 tablespoons grated orange rind

1 tablespoon grated ginger

1 1/2 tsp. cornstarch

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 tsp. vegetable oil, divided

1/4 pound fresh snow pea pods

1 medium carrot, thinly sliced into long strips

1 medium green bell pepper, cut into strips

1 medium red bell pepper, cut into strips

1/4 cup sliced water chestnuts

While partially frozen, trim fat from steak and slice diagonally across the grain into thin strips.  Place in a medium bowl.  Combine soy sauce, orange rind, ginger, cornstarch and cinnamon in a small bowl.  Stir well.  Pour soy sauce mixture over steak.  Toss gently to combine.

Brown steak in 1 tsp. of oil in a wok or large skillet.  Remove steak from wok, reserving drippings in pan.  Set steak aside and keep warm.  Heat remaining tsp. of oil in pan and add snow peas, carrot, pepper and water chestnuts.  Cook for 3 minutes until vegetables are crisp tender.  Return steak to wok and cook until thoroughly heated.  Serve with rice.  Makes about 4 servings.
