Orange Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry
3/4 lbs trimmed sirloin steak
1 TBS grated orange peel
2 TBS canola oil
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 small white onion sliced
1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
2 cups broccoli florets
8 oz uncooked whole wheat fettuccine
2 TBS orange juice
2 TBS low sodium soy sauce
1 TBS hoisin sauce
Slice steak into 1.5" pieces. Toss with orange peel; set aside. Heat 1 TBS of oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add pepper flakes, onion, and bell pepper. Stir fry until vegetables wilt. Add broccoli and 3 TBS water; cover and steam 1-2 minutes until broccoli is cooked tender-crisp. Remove from skillet.
Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Stir together orange juice and soy and hoisin sauces. Add remaining oil to skillet and return to medium high heat. Add steak and cashews; stir fry 2-3 minutes. Return vegetables to skillet with sauce mixture and heat through. Drain noodles and top with stir fry. Yields 4 servings.
We tried this recipe last night. We decided to substitute the whole wheat fettuccine for whole wheat brown rice. This is a makes for a great dinner and the left overs reheat well. It is a fairly dry sauce mixture that is light and tasty. This recipe does take some prep time, so give it a shot on the weekend. Stir it up, Trainer Todd
