Orange Broccoli Beef

This is a yummy Chinese meal that is very close to what you would get by going out to a Chinese Restaurant.
Crispy strips of beef coated with a delicious orange sauce served with steamed fresh Broccoli and served over Steamed rice.
Probably the biggest challenge of this dish is getting the strips of beef crispy. The best way is to cook the beef in batches and not all at one time. Also before you cook the beef make sure it has been sitting with the cornstarch on it for a good 30 minutes.
The sauce is simple to make and you could be putting it together as the beef and cornstarch sit.
Our family really enjoyed this meal the orange sauce is very good and makes the Beef and Broccoli taste so Yummy!

Orange Broccoli Beef
4-5 servings


1 1/2lbs beef top sirloin (sliced into thin strips)
¼ cup cornstarch
3/4 cup oil (for frying beef)
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
1/3 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons orange zest
3 tablespoons fresh ginger (grated) or 1 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 ½ tablespoons garlic (minced)
1 bunch green onions (sliced)
Broccoli florets (steamed crisp)
1 cup long grain rice (cooked)

How To Make:
Coat beef strips with cornstarch and allow to sit for 30 minutes. In a small bowl mix sugar, rice vinegar, orange juice, salt, and soy sauce. Set aside.
2: Heat oil in a deep fry pan (or wok) to 375 degrees. Fry beef strips in batches until crispy and golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Set aside.
3: Heat a couple tablespoons of oil in a wok, add orange zest, ginger and garlic, stir fry for 20 seconds. Add the soy sauce mixture to the wok, bring to a boil, and cook until the mixture has thickened. Coat the beef strips with the sauce, top with green onions. Serve with broccoli florets and on top of rice.
