Ingredients

  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (from 1 orange)
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon light-brown sugar
  • 1 lb. top or bottom round steak cut into strips, 2 inches long and 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 bunch (1 pound) broccoli florets broken into small pieces (reserve stalks for another use)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 red bell pepper (ribs and seeds removed), cut into strips, 2 inches long and 1/4 inch wide

Directions

  1. Cook rice according to package instructions; set aside. Meanwhile, in a small bowl or liquid-measuring cup, combine orange juice, vinegar, soy sauce, and sugar; set aside. In a medium bowl, toss beef with cornstarch; season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, combine broccoli with 1 cup water; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high; cook, partially covered, until broccoli is bright green and crisp-tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Discard any water in skillet; wipe with paper towel.
  3. In same skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over high. When pan is very hot, add half the beef; cook until browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer beef to plate with broccoli. Repeat with remaining oil and remaining beef, but leave beef in skillet.
  4. Return reserved beef and broccoli to skillet; add orange-juice mixture and bell pepper. Continue cooking over high heat until sauce thickens, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve over rice.
