Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Orange Beef Stir Fry

This is a nice stir fry recipe.  The citrus isn't too strong.  Just don't skimp on the ginger.  Go to your local store, find the ginger root and buy it.   If it is too large, break of what you need if sold by weight. 

16 Ounce Steak                                                   1 Tsp cornstarch
8 Ounce Green Beans, halved                               1 Tbl Orange Peel, Grated
1/2 Cup orange juice                                             1 Tbl Fresh Ginger, Grated
2 Tbl Ponzu sauce                                                2 Clove garlic, minced
1 Tbl sesame oil                                                   1 Tsp canola oil

Trim fat from meat. Thinly slice meat across the grain into bite-size strips. Set aside. In a covered medium saucepan, cook green beans in a small amount of boiling water for 6 to 8 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain.

For sauce: In a small bowl, combine orange juice, soy sauce, sesame oil, cornstarch, and orange peel. Set aside.
Coat an unheated large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat over medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic to hot skillet; cook and stir for 1 minute. Add the green beans; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove vegetables from skillet.

Carefully add canola oil to the hot skillet. Add meat; cook and stir until done. Remove from skillet.
Stir sauce; add to skillet. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Return meat and vegetables to skillet. Heat through, stirring to coat with sauce. Serve meat mixture with hot cooked brown rice.
