Transform last night's supper into tonight's dinner for six. Hoisin-flavored chuck roast works wonders in this recipe, but you can use flank steak as well. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon canola oil, divided
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges
  • 2 medium sweet red peppers, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 cups cold cooked rice
  • 2 cups cooked beef, sliced across grain into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger


  1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Whisk eggs until blended; pour into skillet. Mixture should set immediately at its edge. As eggs set, push cooked egg toward center, letting uncooked portions flow underneath. When eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains, remove to a cutting board and chop. Meanwhile, drain oranges, reserving 2 tablespoons juice.
  2. In same skillet, heat remaining 1 tsp. oil over medium-high heat. Add peppers, sugar snap peas and onion; cook and stir until crisp-tender, 1-2 minutes. Add garlic and pepper flakes; cook 1 minute longer. Add remaining ingredients and reserved juice; heat through. Gently stir in eggs and drained oranges.
