Serve this fresh, attractive and garlicky stir-fry with rice and a green vegetable. From HomeMaker's yet again, and more to come.
- 12 ounces beef sirloin, 375 g
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 5 carrots
- 1 orange
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons rice vinegar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 5 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 green onion, thinly sliced
- granulated sugar
- vegetable oil
- Cut beef across grain into thin strips; mix with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the soy sauce, cornstarch and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) pepper.
- Cut carrots into thirds; thinly slice lengthwise.
- Grate 1/4 tsp (1 mL) of the orange rind; place in small bowl.
- Juice orange (you should have 1/2 cup/125 mL), discarding pulp; add juice to bowl with remaining soy sauce, rice vinegar and sesame oil; stir in generous pinch of sugar until dissolved. Set aside.
- In wok or skillet, heat 1 cup (250 mL) oil over high heat; fry half of the beef until lightly browned, 30 to 60 seconds. Using slotted spoon, transfer to sieve set over bowl to drain any remaining oil. Repeat with remaining beef. Fry carrots until edges are browned, 4 to 5 minutes; using slotted spoon, transfer to sieve.
- Pour out all but 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil. Add garlic and pinch of salt; stir-fry until golden, about 20 seconds. Add orange mixture; when boiling, add beef and carrots. Stir-fry until sauce is thickened, about 30 seconds. Transfer to serving plate and sprinkle with onion.
This was a great stir fry. I served this over long grain & wild rice. We'll be making this again. Thanks for posting!
This was very good and very orangy~a bit too much so for my husband. I will try it again with a bit less of the oj.
