One of the best things about Janelle recipes is they are EASY & YUMMY. When I need a quick recipe for ANY occasion I head straight to Janelle’s recipes.
Janelle blogs over at Comfy in the Kitchen  and has SO many recipes for any occasion. Today she will be sharing with us “Crispy Orange Beef with Broccoli”.  I LOVE some chocolate so I  know this will be another winning recipe to add to the books and the kids will surely love them too. Cant wait to whip this up!
When you get a moment stop on over to Janelle Blog and let her know I sent you. Every Friday she has a link up called Feasting in Fellowship Fridays!

This is a great meal that my entire family enjoys (it is naturally allergy friendly) The beef is crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. I love the sweet and savory flavor this dish offers. Oh YUM!

Drain beef on a paper towel. Again, I always recommend getting your meats at a butcher-there is honestly no comparison to the quality of meat. It can make or break a recipe-truly. Ask your butcher to thinly slice top sirloin for a stir fry dish.

In a small bowl mix together frozen orange juice concentrate (you may also use the juice from 2 oranges-about 1/2 cup), sugar, white vinegar, and soy sauce.

Make a good quality rice enough for 6 – I use Jasmine brand rice in the Asian aisle at the grocery store. All you do is add water and rice per directions- boil, then cover and let sit for 20 mins. I hands down prefer rice like this than to quick min. rice.

Lightly coat beef in cornstarch

Brown beef in a hot wok with wok oil. Do this in about 3-4 batches (do not cook beef all at once-it will not be crispy). Take the beef out and lay it on a dish covered with a paper towel until ready to use.

Drain all oil out of the wok except 1 Tbsp. Add orange zest, ginger,  and garlic. Add the soy sauce mixture and let simmer until it thickens. (If you like it thicker, make a paste of 1 tsp of cornstarch and 1 tbsp of water and add to it, but I did not need to do this).

Add beef and stir.

Serve with steamed broccoli and hot rice.

This recipe is delicious…and waaaaay healthier than take out!
