    Scoutie's Note:

    This is a yummy stir-fry. The tangerine adds a very refreshing flavor to the dish. 2 to 3 oranges can be substituted for the tangerines. I serve with rice. Prep time does not include marinade time. This is adapted from Cooks Illustrated, Nov. 2007 issue. Hope you enjoy!

      This was outstanding. I used three honey tangerines. It was so flavorful, fresh, and healthy. Thank you for posting!

      This dish worked real well, we enjoyed it very much. I tried crushed mandarin oranges but missed on the sweetness a bit. Will definitely try again.

      This has a really nice flavor. I bumped up the amount of beef (DH wouldn't know what do with all those veggies!) but otherwise I wouldn't change a thing. He wants me to try it with pork next time.
