Beef Strips with Orange and Ginger

This is inspired by my dad’s cook but I twist the recipe a bit by using orange instead of lime. This is stir fry cooking, one of the best ways to cook meat with minimum fat. It is also one of the quickest ways to cook, provided you need to choose tender meat. So you will need:

Lean beef rump, fillet or sirloin. What ever, but cut into thin stips
Juice of 1 orange
1 tablespoon of Light soy sauce
Corn flour
2 tablespoons of Sesame oil
1 inch of ginger, finely chopped
Large carrot, cut into thin strips
2 spring onion, thinly sliced
Place the beef strips in a bowl and sprinkle over the orange juice. Leave it to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Drain the liquid from the meat and set aside, then mix with soy sauce, corn flour and ginger.
Heat the sesame oil in a wok or large frying pan and add the beef. Stir fry for about 1 minute until lightly coloured, then add the spring onions and the liquid that we reserved earlier, then cook and stirring until boiling and thickened.
Lastly, add the carrot and stir fry again for another couple of minutes more.
Now we done! Best served with plain rice or rice noodles.
