“With its citrusy splash of fresh orange flavor, this dish has become a tasty, Chinese New Year tradition at our house!“ notes Marguerite Shaeffer in Sewell, New Jersey. “Our son David frequently fixed this quick recipe when it was his turn to cook as a college student,“ she adds. TASTY TIP: To turn up the heat and create a spicier Orange Beef Stir-Fry, try substituting Asian chili paste for hoisin sauce. Brown rice is also a delicious option with this meal, says Marguerite Shaeffer.
