Tangerine Beef

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by ChrisMc

This is one of my favorite takeout dishes - it's sweet and hot; I've had this with both beef and chicken (for tangerine chicken or shrimp, use chicken broth instead of beef).

Honestly, one of the best citrus beef recipes we've ever done - and we do a lot of them. Thank you!!! We didn't know that boiling tangerine peel made it so soft and sweet. It lends a really special flavor to this beef, it is wonderful. We used the tangerine juice (since we had the tangerines) and used sirloin steak. Easy and fast to make, too!
