1 pound boneless sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce, divided
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 cups matchstick-cut carrots
1 onion, cut into 8 wedges and separated
How to Make It
Place beef in a shallow dish; pour 2 tablespoons soy sauce over beef. Turn to coat completely. Let marinate 15 minutes in refrigerator.
Combine orange juice, sugar, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, vinegar, orange rind, and red pepper in a small bowl. Stir with a whisk.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add beef, and cook 6 minutes. Remove from heat, and place on a serving platter; keep warm.
Reduce heat to medium-high; add carrot and onion. Cook 7 minutes or until carrot is lightly browned and crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Increase heat to high; add beef and its juices, and orange juice mixture. Cook 3 minutes or until slightly thickened.
This was very easy to make and had a nice orange flavor. We like a lot of veggies so I added some thinly sliced pepper. Next time I will cut the onion wedges a little smaller to be closer in size to the other veggies.
