"really enjoyed this, I used 1 habenero pepper instead of dried chilies for freshness. Ended up pretty spicy but balanced by the orange flavor. Will definitely make again "

This recipe makes an easy task more complicated. If you skip the water and simply steam your broccoli separately you can skip cooking down all the liquid.

Do the broccoli separately then skip the water and the corn starch. That is a silly step. It caused me to have to cook this dish down until everything in the wok was soggy and over done. That risk is avoided by eliminating the water and just using the orange juice and maybe a little marmalade (also skip the sugar if you use marmalade)

nice colors, nice mix of flavors

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.
