    Pretty easy and economical if you have everything on hand. Bought the least expensive stew meat on sale, and still got a very tender & flavorful Asian-style beef. Recommend to make-ahead for part of a multi-course buffet.

    Love this dish. Spicy bite, rich flavor. Really confused about other reviews. Maybe bad ingredients? Great recipe!

    Absolutely loved it and added to our favorites. Only adjustments: more cooking time to get the beef to the really tender stage (almost 2 hours - just keep checking.) Also - fried the beef separately and then added back to the cooked orange, garlic and pepper so I could get more of the carmelization on the meat.

    I didn't think the heat was there nor the orange flavor. I doubled the hot peppers (even crushed a few) and still wasn't very much heat. The orange i got confused by the directions so i think i needed more than i put in. Scared me with the comment about bitter, so i zested a whole orange instead of veggie peeling it. Would have liked more of a "char" on the meat, so probably cooking first would have been better. I don't think i'll make it again.

    Delicious and easy. Everyone loves this. I too like abut of caramelization on my meat so brown it first as well . Added extra hot peppers as we like spicy!, used juice from orange too. Add the carrot for last 30 minutes only so they are no so soft, we like crunch.
