This was dinner last night and though it was exceedingly yummy, it didn't sit well in my pouch. However, the boys loved it and there were no leftovers at all. Next time, I will trying pounding the beef a bit more and slicing it into thinner slices.
Orange Beef and Broccoli Stir-fry
1/4 cup low sodium beef broth
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tbsp olive or vegetable oil ( I use cold-pressed olive oil)
1 lb top round London Broil, pounded and sliced very thinly into strips
1 - 10 oz package broccoli florets, thawed and drained and patted dry
1/4 fresh orange juice
1 tbsp grated orange zest
salt and pepper
Whisk together broth, soy sauce, lemon juice, and cornstarch in a small bowl. Set aside.
Warm oil in wok or large skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add beef and increase heat to high. Stir constantly, until beef is no longer pink, about 2 -3 minutes. Add broccoli, stirring continuously, and cook for 2 more minutes.
Stir in reserved sauce, orange zest, and orange juice, stirring continuously about 2 minutes until sauce is thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Serves 4.
Modified slightly from ALL YOU'S Eat Well, Save Big cookbook.
This is one I will definitely use often.
