  1. Steam or boil the broccoli for 3-4 mins until tender. Drain and run under cold water.
  2. Heat 2 tsp of the oil in a non-stick wok or large frying pan and toss the beef strips in cornflour. When the oil is hot, fry the beef for 1-2 mins to brown, then put to one side.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in the pan, then toss in the peppers and fry for 2 mins. Add the ginger, garlic, chilli and 3 spring onions, and cook for 1 min more, taking care not to burn the garlic. Add the orange juice, honey, rice vinegar and soy, and bubble down briefly before stirring in the broccoli, beef and orange segments. Heat through, then sprinkle with the remaining chopped spring onion. Serve with rice or noodles.

Yummy.....We used some supermarket 'sell off' rump steak. A bit of 'prep' involved but worth it. We both really enjoyed it for our mail meal and had enough left over for a 'snack' lunch for the following day.

Delicious, easy, and quick to make. Will definitely make again, and have shared to friends.

Bit of a faff to prepare, so i docked a point. However it is worth it, so fresh tasting compared to gloopy sauces people use from supermarkets. I tend to serve without the noodles and increase the veg content for a healthy mid-week meal. To cut costs have also tended to use frying steak, or the pre-prepared stirfry beef. These work just as well for budget cooking.

A good stir fry recipe, very simple once everything was prepared.
