Beef Stir Fry with a difference
I think it worked well, so well that I think I might try it again.
Anyway, the basic recipe is much the same as a beef and oyster sauce stir fry, but using orange juice instead of the oyster sauce!
350g beef fillet, sliced into strips
1 orange, juiced and the zested with a grater
1 small pip of garlic
1 tbsp good quality naturally brewed soy sauce
vegetable oil (I used grape seed oil, but u can use peanut or canola oil)
1 tsp cornflour
marinate the beef in the garlic, soy sauce, orange zest and vegetable oil for 1 hour
heat a wok to high heat, stir fry the beef in oil in batches
take out of wok
stir fry vegetables of choice (carrots, capsicum/pepper, beans) in batches
Put all the meat and vegetables back into the wok
Add orange juice, thickened with a tsp of cornflour
Simmer until the sauce has thickened
Serve on a bed of rice
I think the flavour works, it almost has a middle eastern or moroccan feel to the dish. You can top with almond slivers for a bit of crunch. Play around with this and see how it goes.
