Mandarin Beef Stir-Fry

 Mandarin Beef Stir-Fry
This colorful stir-fry from Anne Drouin of Dunnville, Ontario is pretty enough to double as a centerpiece. "The crispy veggies contrast nicely with the tender beef and juicy oranges," she informs. "Even the most finicky eaters in our family can't resist it."
