15 Minute Tangerine Beef and Broccoli

Dinner is typically a drag in our house. Come five o'clock I do not feel like cooking for anyone. Stirfries tend to be a go to dish because they are quick, easy, plus filled with protein and vegetables. When served over a whole grain like brown rice, quinoa or farro it is the complete package! 
With little prep work you can have this dish done in 15-30 minutes start to finish. AND it is a dish that will please all the picky eaters in your house. While you are at it, save some money on takeout night and make your own fake out dish! It is healthier and way tastier!

15 Minute Tangerine Beef and Broccoli
For the beef:
1 lb stir fry beef (this is typically thin cut strips of flank steak)
2 tsp sesame oil 
1 egg
1/3 cup cornstarch
1 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs fresh squeezed tangerine juice (or orange) 
2 tbs Peanut Oil for frying
For the sauce and broccoli: 
1 tsp minced ginger root
4 cloves minced garlic
1/2 cup beef stock
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup tangerine juice (or orange) 
2 tbs Sriracha (Thai chili sauce) 
1 tbs honey
2 tbs cornstarch
2 tbs sesame oil
2 cups brocoli floretts 

In a mixing bowl whisk together 2 tsp sesame oil, egg, corn starch, soy sauce and 2 tbs tangerine juice. Toss beef  in the mixture. 
Add 2 tbs peanut oil to a large fry pan and heat over high heat. Add beef to the ban and stir fry for about 3-5 minutes, or until the beef has browned. 
Remove from pan and set aside. 
In the same pan, add an additional 2 tsp sesame oil, ginger and garlic. Whisk in beef stock, tangerine juice, Sriracha, honey and cornstarch. Constantly whisk until the mixture is smooth.
Add in broccoli florets and bring to a low boil.  
Mix in the beef you previously fried, mix until coated in the sauce and serve over your favorite grain. 
Additional sesame seeds or tangerine slices for garnish, optional.

  2. Oooh, Carrie this is calling my name! Making this for the hubby soon!

  3. 15 minutes is about all the time I have, so this is perfect. Love the flavors!

  4. this looks SO GOOD! we have a tangelo tree in our front yard so I think i'll try some of those in there :)

    1. I am so jealous of the fact you thane a tangelo tree.... want to know what I have in my front yard? Snow. Lots of snow.

  5. LOVE this!! I am totally gonna make this soon!

  6. How many servings is it? Also, are beef broth and beef stock interchangeable?

    1. Yes you can use broth instead of stock. And this recipe is for about 4 people.

  7. This looks AMAZING! I can't wait to try this!

  8. This is happening for dinner very soon. I can't stop thinking about it.

  9. When I was writing my cookbook I actually said, "I'm too busy cooking to make dinner!" Which only sounds crazy unless you're a food blogger then it totally makes sense. I love this dish, it loos amazing!

  10. Dear Lord, this was excellent!! To quote my husband "This is perfect". I used orange juice and added onions and water chestnuts because the four of us love them. And I had it on the table within an hour, even better! But I am curious, what does the egg do? I have never added that to meat before when stir frying. Thank you!
