The Wonderful Tangy Taste of Orange Beef

There is a wonderful underlying citrus taste of orange in this orange beef dish. This is a brilliant way to cook meat.

Orange Beef

Course: Meats

Cuisine: Chinese


  • 1 lb beef cut in cubes or thin strips
  • 1/2 tbsp rice cooking wine
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 1/3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup chive chopped (for garnish)
  • 1 tbsp. ginger grated (divided)
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 4 tbsp. oil
  • Sauce
  • 1/3 tbsp. hot pepper chopped or pepper sauce
  • 1/3 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp soy sauce


  • Combine all the ingredients for the sauce, stir and set aside.
  • Note: Even afterwards, you may still have to stir it because the cornstarch settles.
  • Season the beef with garlic, 1/2 tbsp ginger, soy sauce, rice cooking wine, salt and sugar.
  • Leave to marinate for 10 minutes.
  • Heat the oil and saute rest of ginger and onion.
  • Add beef and stir fry until it is no longer pink.
  • Add the sauce and cook until thick, adjust salt to taste. Garnish with chive before serving.


What I like about this dish is that you can serve it with rice, noodles or just as a side dish.
