  • Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a wok or large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add half the beef; stir-fry until browned, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Stir-fry the remaining beef in 1 teaspoon oil; transfer to the plate.

  • Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to the wok. Add ginger and stir-fry until fragrant, 10 to 20 seconds. Add onion; stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add bell pepper and broccoli; stir-fry for 30 seconds. Pour in the remaining 1/4 cup broth, cover and cook until the vegetables are crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Push the vegetables to the sides. Stir the sauce mixture and add it to the wok. Cook, stirring, until the sauce becomes thick and translucent. Stir the vegetables into the sauce and return the beef to the wok; toss to coat. Serve immediately.

Tips

People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.

This recipe is a KEEPER! I found this rece just today and fixed it for dinner tonight. It was very good and everyone loved it! Because of the heat factor I substituted plain tomato paste and exta garlic for the chili-garlic paste called for and I added a can of baby corn (rinsed and drained well). I served it over brown rice and for extra crunch I sprinkled sliced almonds over the top. Pros: Great taste; easy to prepare; family lived it Read More

Yum! Fast and easy. I made this exactly to the recipe and it went over well. Only thing is that the orange flavor doesn't come through very strongly. Every now and then you get a bite and taste it but mostly it tastes like beef and veggies. Next time I will put more marmalade in there! Valerie Sugar Land TX Read More

Fast and easy to fix. So fast you better start the water for the rice before you do anything else. The subtleness of the orange adds another level to the flavor of this stir-fry. it reminds me of a sweet and sour takeout without all the fat and calories. Anonymous Read More

I loved this recipe! I forgot the chicken broth but just substituted with a little water. In addition I added probably another 1/2 tablespoon of marmalade! For such a healthy dinner it was awesome! I will definitely make it again but will try chicken and/or shrimp next time. Read More

I made this and it was an instant hit in my house. I made it with double the sauce and I was happy with the amount of sauce we had. My boyfriend commented that it was a little fishy for a beef dish. I'm guessing that it was the oyster sauce. Next time I will be trying this with chicken and without the oyster sauce. Read More

I loved this. I will definitely make it again. I also doubled the amount of sauce that I used and added a few more veggies into it (carrots and bean sprouts). The extra sauce also came in handy for reheating the next day. It turned out great. Read More
