  • Return reserved beef and broccoli to skillet; add orange-juice mixture and bell pepper. Continue cooking over high heat until sauce thickens, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve over rice.

Made this last night with improvements suggested (red pepper flakes in liquid, orange sections added at the end) and we loved it! We used end trimmings from a whole tenderloin of beef. It had plenty of flavor. Made brown rice with it. It does NOT make four servings, unless you are serving Smurfs.

Add orange slices from one orange. Add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper to oil. Also added pea pods. Yum.

Made the receipe today, had a very strong orange and sweet flavor. Was still missing more spice. I doubled the soy sauce and added sesame oil. To serve it, I sprinled roasted sesame seeds on top. I will definetely make this dish again.

Can't figure out what people like about this recipe. I found it quite bland and uninspired.

I made this last night as well and it was really good! Will make it again. quick and easy. I had only added that orange zest along with the orange juice to punch up the flavor!

Not sure why this thing always cuts off what I say. I bumped up the orange flavor with some zest and a tablespoon of frozen OJ concentrate. YUM!

I have made this a couple of times and we really like it! I like the recipe as written, so my advice would be to try it first, and then if you need more punch use the contributors suggestions.

Wonderful recipe. I agree, it needs a bit more orange flavor in the sauce - I will add more orange juice next time as well a a little bit of orange zest and a slight bit of zested ginger. Complete meal in one with the rice - I used brown rice for more nutrition.

The next time I make this, I will double the sauce. The orange flavor didn't stand out, so I think I'll add some orange zest. I'm thinking I might want to add some fresh ground ginger, and maybe some orange marmalade. The dish was good, but needed a little extra flavor...and definitely more sauce. I also sauteed the bell pepper for a minute, in the skillet, before adding back the broccoli and reserved beef. Very good!
