    Default Spicy Orange Beef

    Here is one I sort of made up based on some of my favorite Chinese dishes..


    3 cups orange juice
    1 small jar of Thai garlic chili sauce (the thick kind)
    5 stalks celery - chopped
    1/4 lb fresh snow peas
    1/4 lb fresh bean sprouts
    1 cup diced sweet onion
    3 tbs chili oil
    1 lb fresh top round, london broil or similar

    Mix 1 cup orange juice and 2 tbs of the garlic chili sauce. Let stand while slicing beef stir fry style. When finished slicing meat, pour orange/chili mixture over beef. Cover and refrigerate while making orange reduction.


    Mix 2 cups orange juice with 4 tbs of garlic chili sauce in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat after 2 minutes to a simmer. Let simmer until sauce is a syrupy consistency, stirring frequently.

    When orange reduction is ready:

    Place the chili oil in a stir fry pan or wok or large frying pan and heat to medium high. Drain marinade from meat and place meat in frying pan, cooking quickly on both sides. Stir in the vegetables and quickly cook until onion is clear. Turn heat down to simmer and add orange chili reduction. Stir to cover all ingredients with orange sauce.

    Serve over rice, noodles or on it's own. Spiciness can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the amount of chili sauce used.

    I don't know what it is about hot/spicy chinese food, but I love it! It's a different burn then you get from the jalapeno.

    I think I am getting fat just ready all of these recipes...Sounds great Diane!!

    I like oriental dishes and stirfry often. I make a similar dish but I use orange or tangerine peel and fry the peel and chili pepper flakes in the oil that I am going to be stir frying the beef in. It flavors the oil with orange and the hotness.
