Beef Stir Fry with Veggies and Tangerine Sauce

Ever end up with a dish you’re not sure what to do with? This was one of those. Started off in a bowl, but ended up on a plate due to noodleage.

Flank steak strips with soy sauce and a little brown sugar for the marinade
Green beans
Red pepper
Orange pepper
Red pepper flakes
Jalapeño I had leftover
Juice of 3 tangerines
Lots of garlic (whatever your taste)
Lots of ginger (I love ginger)


Sauce was soy sauce, tangerine juice, pinch of brown sugar, corn starch

Essentially blackened the beef (then removed and cleaned up pan), then did the veggies in about 4 minutes, added a little water (steam and deglaze) then added garlic and ginger.

Added the sauce and let it thicken up, added beef back in. It was that simple and about 12 minutes of cooking time.

The wildcard was a bag of rice noodles I had. They took 2 minutes max to cook. I thought I created a great noodle bowl, but it proved to be impossible to eat, hence the plate.

What’s your favorite stir fry combination? I’m going to do more dinners like this. A little prep heavy, but tasty.
