Recipe: Citrus Beef with Scallions

This recipe came from C in DC via email. The subject line was simply, yum. I would tend to agree. The recipe appears here.

Citrus Beef with Scallions
  • 1 lb of sirloin cut into strips
  • the zest of 1 orange and juice of 2 oranges
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • the white of scallions, sliced thinly
Combine this all into a small bowl and marinated the beef for about two hours in the fridge.

Heat a large skillet with a little oil. I added the beef (keep the marinade) and cook for about five minutes. Remove the beef to a plate.

  • the greens of a bunch of scallions, cut into about 1 1/2 inches
  • a handful of shredded carrots
  • sliced zucchini
Cook for about two minutes, until the scallions are wilted. Remove the veggies to a the plate with the beef. Add the marinade to the pan and boil, reduce by half. Add about a tablespoon of brown sugar. Throw everything back in the skillet and cook for about a minute. Serve over the rice.

I'm afraid Charles wouldn't go for this, but it does sound good.
Hope you're feeling better these days!

Did you like it? I loved it and haven't made it in a while. It needs to go back on the rotation.

Lana - sometimes it's good to stray from the reservation.

Geggie - not yet, but it might find its way into our rotation very soon.
