This was so tasty! My beef never got crispy, but I think that is my fault, too scared to get the as hot as probably needed to crisp it. Also, my beef was not frozen, since I purchased it already sliced. Used pepper flakes, and the heat was perfect! Loved the orange flavor without using orange juice (usually too sweet for me) and the sauce was nice and thick.

I didn't have oyster sauce or water chestnuts in my pantry, but this recipe looked awesome , so I went out of my way to go to the store and buy those ingredients. I followed the recipe to the letter as I always do, so I can fairly rate the recipe. I am so happy I put the extra effort in to make this. It was AWESOME, my hubby loved it. Kudos to you for posting this. I will make again, and now I will forever keep oyster sauce and water chestnuts in my panty.

Loved this. Did not have whole peppers, so used 1 Tbsp. dried flakes. Too much for the kids, but just right for me and the husband. We loved it and will have again. Also, I used 2 oranges, and it was very tasty. A nice hot dish for a cold night.

We loved this. A wonderful pungency from the oranges gave this a great flavor. The beef turned out nice and crispy and the sauce was delicious. I think I used an orange too small for the recipe and we felt it could use more of the orange strips. This however, did not detract from the recipes appeal. Thank you!

Yummy, yummy, yummy. We had this at a restaurant and I was craving it a week later. This was fabulous! I doubled the sauce, which was perfect for our family of 5. And even my picky ones ate it all. Thanks so much.

This was really yummy and easy to make after the prep. I think next time I might add a bit of orange juice to the sauce though and make the peel a little bit thicker. The beef was crispy and delicious, thanks!

We loved this. Like some others, I added some orange juice to the sauce, and some fresh ginger, and tossed in a big bunch of chinese greens at the end. I found the beef was very crispy until I returned it to the sauce - I used peanut oil and cooked in small batches in an electric wok with no problems. I think the only way you'd keep the beef crispy is to serve it separately, which would be nice as well, but I liked it mixed in the sauce. Will definitely be making this again, and will also try it without frying the beef in the oil first, as I think it will be almost as nice plus healthier.

I found this recipe OK, I liked the fact I didn't have to make a batter for the beef, but the beef didn't get the really crispy/coated texture we like.
