Citrus Steaks Recipe

Brighten up those cold winter nights with a burst of citrus! Clementines and beef make a delicious pairing in this special dinner for two.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 beef top sirloin steaks (5 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 clementines, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1/3 cup dry red wine or reduced-sodium beef broth
  • Hot cooked rice, optional


  • 1. Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook steaks in oil over medium heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  • 2. Meanwhile, combine the clementines, onion and walnuts; set aside. Remove steaks and keep warm.
  • 3. Add wine or broth to the skillet, stirring to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 1-2 minutes or until liquid is reduced to 2 tablespoons. Spoon over steaks. Serve with clementine mixture and rice if desired. Yield: 2 servings.

"I changed this a little. Left out the onions. Didn't have clementines, used oranges insted. Didn't have walnuts used peacans insted. I put the peacans and the oranges in with the broth. Then poured over the steaks. Yum! I might cook the steaks in the broth next time :)"
