I really liked this recipe. I did expect a little more of an "orange" taste being that it is Orange Beef, but I do believe that was my fault. I didn't have this with the barley pilaf, which does sound amazing, I was just to tired to mess with it. I will be making it again with the pilaf. Thanks internetnut for posting this recipe.
