Oh how I love this Asian Orange Beef recipe. I love Orange Chicken so it’s only natural that I would also love Orange Beef. And I was right.

When making this recipe it’s very important to select the correct type of meat. Beef Sirloin Steaks have no bones and very little fat. It is also a little more affordable than some of the other cuts like Filet Mignon.

I prefer to use Navel Oranges when I can get my hands on them but you can substitute for whatever type of oranges you have on hand.

Just make sure the oranges you use will generate the same amount of zest and juice that a Navel Orange will generate.

Also don’t skimp on the Fresh Ginger. It plays a very important role in this Asian dish. Most of the flavor of the sauce comes from the orange juice and zest, the fresh ginger and the garlic.

How to Handle Raw Beef

  • Thaw frozen ground beef on a plate on the lowest shelf of the refrigerator, to avoid dripping onto other foods.
  • Keep raw and ready-to-eat meats separate.
  • Wash hands thoroughly before and after handling raw ground beef. Wash cutting boards, bowls, and utensils used to prepare raw ground beef with hot soapy water and rinse well.
  • Use separate plates to carry raw ground beef patties to the cooking area and cooked patties to the serving area.
  • Use a Thermometer to ensure Ground Beef Reaches the Safely Cooked Internal Temperature of 160°F.

    This was easy to make and I love that it’s not just made with orange juice, but using the juice of the oranges and the zest really bring this flavor out.
