I've been waiting to use up some top round we bought a few weeks ago when it went on sale. Since we were already busy most of the morning with grocery shopping, I didn't want to spend too much time in the kitchen tonight - so we went with a recipe for Orange Beef Stir-Fry. I waited until this morning to take the beef out of the freezer so it would still be pretty firm when I got to it - this makes it easy to get thin slices. If you didn't freeze the meat already, stash it in the freezer for around 15-30 minutes and that will accomplish the same thing. I took the time to make brown jasmine rice, but you could use white to get this dinner on the table faster. I prefer to steam broccoli, instead of boiling as the recipe called for, but do it how you prefer - just take it to crisp-tender. The beef is coated with cornstarch, seasoned and goes for a quick fry in a hot skillet. The cornstarch on the beef will help thicken a killer sauce made from fresh orange juice, rice vinegar, soy sauce and brown sugar. For how quick and easy this is, Jeff and I were surprised at how much we liked it - the tangy sauce paired with beef was not too sweet and almost had us licking the plate clean!
