Orange Beef with Rice Noodles November 9, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — kariryerson @ 11:11 am

This is from “Chinese, the essence of Asian cooking” a book I got on the bargain shelf at Walden’s (remember that store?). There are a lot of great simple recipes that we enjoy. You can also serve this with rice but I liked the though of changing it up a bit.



  • 1lb sirloin, cut into thin strips
  • Finely grated rind and juice of 1 orange
  • 1tbsp soy sauce
  • 1tsp cornstarch
  • 1in fresh ginger root, finely chopped
  • 2tsp sesame oil
  • 1 large carrot, cut into matchstick strips
  • Rice noodles (or rice)


Place the steak strips in a bowl and sprinkle over orange rind and juice. Set aside to marinate for about 30 minutes.

Drain the liquid from the steak and reserve. Mix together steak, soy sauce, cornstarch and ginger.

Heat the oil in a preheated wok or large frying pan, then add the steak and stir-fry for 1 minute, until lightly colored. Add the carrot and stir0fy for another 2-3 minutes.

Stir in spring onions and reserved marinate liquid. Cook, stirring constantly, until boiling and thickened. Serve with rice noodles or plain rice.
