We love any type of Asian food and while I don’t get to cook a lot of stuff I do like to try some of the easier recipes. This recipe is great and taste just like the restaurant. The sauce comes out nice and thick while the meat is really tender. It’s a simple go to recipe that you can make ahead of time and serve up on a busy night. We like it a little on the spicy side, but that’s easy to adjust yourself with extra chili sauce.
Crispy Orange Beef
(Adapted from goodcook)
1.5 lbs sirloin, cubed or cut into thin strips
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup cornstarch
16 oz coconut oil
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2-3 Tbsp chili garlic sauce
Zest of 1 orange
2 cups broccoli florets
sticky rice (if desired)
Sprinkle sirloin with salt.
Toss with cornstarch until well coated.
In a Good Cook 9″ Cast Iron Pan, heat coconut oil over high heat.
Once the oil is hot, cook 6-8 strips at a time, until golden brown. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.
Once all beef is cooked, pour any extra oil from the skillet. No need to scrub the skillet clean, a few fried bits will help season the glaze.
Add brown sugar and orange juice to the skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, whisking constantly until thickened. (About the consistency of maple syrup). Whisk in soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, and orange zest.
Toss beef and broccoli florets into skillet.
Stir with a wooden spoon until broccoli is tender.
Serve over sticky rice, if desired.
