Recipe by Koechin (Chef)
I first tasted this recipe at an Art Seminar in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I reworked it somewhat to suit our taste. It was a big hit at a recent dinner.

- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 3 tablespoons oil
- 18 g au jus mix
- 1 cup orange juice

- Cut the meat into 1 inch cubes and brown in the oil.
- Add the onions and cook until onions are soft.Sprinkle with pepper. Add soy sauce, ginger and the drained syrup from the oranges or pineapple.
- Combine the AUS JUS Mix with the orange juice and water and add to the beef. Cover and cook over low heat until meat is tender. About 1 hour.

- I served this with Recipe #61712 but did not use the chicken called for.
