Orange Sesame Beef

September 25, 2013Teresa

 2013 – Gluten Free Living

Orange Sesame Beef is so succulent and amazing. It’s a delicious stir-fry recipe filled with exotic and wonderful flavors to tantalize your taste buds! Lots of beef, carrots, broccoli, water chestnuts, sugar snap peas, and garlic are revved up by a superb orange marmalade sauce and freshly grated ginger. Serve over steamed brown rice and you have a wonderful, healthy, low calorie, gluten free dish that doesn’t need to be supplemented by any other food.

I had a bunch of beef stir-fry meat in my freezer that I was trying to use up so I got on Pinterest and started searching through stir-fry recipes to see what I could come up with that sounded good. I found this wonderful recipe and I was so glad I gave it a try! In fact, if you like Asian or Sri Lankan-style food you will love digging through the archives on this website. There is SO much too choose from.

My husband and I both loved the taste of the sauce. It’s composed of orange marmalade, soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice wine vinegar, and beef broth. I wasn’t planning on purchasing oyster sauce originally since I rarely use that ingredient, but it wasn’t excessively expensive at the store so I figured I’d give it a shot. Once I opened up the bottle to smell it, I recognized immediately that it is used in LOTS of Chinese food that I eat regularly at Chinese buffets, so I was no longer alarmed at this strange ingredient–even though I don’t care for oysters.

I changed the ingredients up a little bit by substituting rice wine vinegar for rice wine, adding sugar snap peas and mandarin orange segments, and green onions for garnish. We really enjoyed the way this recipe turned out, but let me give you a few suggestions if you’re not used to making stir fries very often. First, find very thinly sliced beef at the grocery store. It cooks so much easier than trying to slice the beef as thin as it needs to be. It needs to be fork-tender.

Second, pre-cook, parboil, or microwave the carrots until they are almost done before adding them to this recipe. Otherwise, carrots cook so slowly they will be hard and all the other veggies overcooked. Third, don’t cook or stir the mandarin orange segments into the stir fry. They will fall apart if you do that. Instead, use them as garnish. The heat from the stir-fry will warm them up when you are ready to serve anyway. Fourth, when you remove the beef to paper towels, the sesame seeds will begin popping. Be careful you don’t get burned when you try to remove them from the skillet/wok and begin cooking the veggies.

If you’re looking for an incredibly tasty beef stir-fry dish, then consider trying out Orange Sesame Beef sometime soon. Whether you use my additions or go back to the original recipe, you will find this beef entree extraordinary. If you enjoy Asian foods at all, this one is worth a try. I liked the sauce so much I’m going to use it with other stir fries in the future!

I originally posted this recipe in September 2013. I figured this recipe was due for an update so I recently remade this recipe (March 2018) and took some fresh pictures. This time I scrapped the mandarin orange segments completely and just garnished the dish with fresh navel orange slices. I hosted my son and his girlfriend for dinner and this recipe was perfect for all four of us. My oldest son loves Asian food, so this was a win-win for everyone. We enjoyed Orange Sesame Beef along with Easy Baked Rice, my Winter Fruit Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing and a Gluten Free Blueberry Cobbler with a scoop of Blue Bell ice cream. Yes, it was delightful meal we salivated over for quite some time. 🙂

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients for the stir fry. 

Before you get started, peel and slice the carrots. Microwave them on high for about 5 minutes while you’re stir-frying the beef.

Salt and pepper the beef. If you purchase it already pre-cut in narrow slices it makes this recipe so much easier.

In a large heavy-duty cast-iron skillet or wok, add avocado oil and heat to medium to medium-high heat. Add strips of beef and begin browning. Add sesame seeds and continue cooking.

Instructions
ORANGE SESAME BEEF:
  1. Heat a few tablespoon of avocado oil in a wok or very large skillet.
  2. Add the beef and sauté.
  3. Season generously with salt, black pepper and add the sesame seeds.
  4. Cook until beef is fork tender.
  5. While beef is cooking, parboil carrots in a pot of water about 3-5 minutes until partially cooked through. (Or microwave on high about 5 minutes).
  6. Meanwhile, mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, orange marmalade and beef broth, and set aside.
  7. Combine cornstarch and water and set aside.
  8. Remove beef and sesame residue from the skillet.
  9. Heat a few more tablespoons of avocado oil in the skillet.
  10. Add the garlic and ginger and sauté about a minute.
  11. Then add parboiled carrots, fresh broccoli, and fresh sugar snap peas and sauté a few minutes until almost desired doneness.
  12. Transfer beef and sesame seeds back into the skillet.
  13. Add the Orange Sesame Sauce ingredients.
  14. Sauté and cook for about 5 minutes so all the meat and veggies are well-coated with the Orange Sesame Sauce.
  15. Add the water chestnuts, and stir to combine.

ORANGE SESAME SAUCE:
  1. Mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, orange marmalade and beef broth, and set aside.
  2. Add with stir fry after vegetables and meet are sauteed.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: I recommend that you either parboil the carrots about 3-5 minutes to at least cook half-way done or microwave them about 3-5 minutes so they are partially cooked. This is because the carrots take so long to cook until fork tender, that all the other veggies will be cooked and the carrots will still be hard.

NOTE: If you have your wok or skillet on a medium or medium-high heat the sesame seeds will pop and splatter (especially when you’re removing the beef mixture). Be careful you don’t get burned!
