Fresh, flavorful and fiery

I loved the flavors of this, in particular the strips of orange, which added a wonderfully bright zing. I didn't have bell peppers so substituted snow peas, although I think using red and yellow peppers would really brighten up the colors of the dish. I used thinly sliced filet, and two thai red chili peppers, very thinly sliced. They gave just enough of a nice tingle to the dish.

Quick

Left overs get rave reviews

I used left over rump roast for the meat, the juice of only one orange. and only a quarter of the zest of that orange.
My family RAVED over the results! What a nice surprise for a dinner using up left overs.

A fast way to use left over roast

This was good, but the 1-inch strips of orange zest were too strong for us. Will make the recipe again, but use small zest strips instead.

This was OK....can be improved to be GREAT

I thought this was a pretty good recipe for through the week. Pretty quick and will be faster the more I make it. I added additional vegetables to round out the flavor and substituted red chili flakes. My main suggestion would be to marinate the beef in advance. The meat just tastes like meat in the recipe as written and needs much more salt just to round out the flavor.

Relatively healthy, fairly quick
