Orange Beef and Broccoli

Sometimes I like a good stir fry. We made a delicious Orange Beef and Broccoli recipe the other night and it came out great so I thought I would share. We very loosely based our recipe on what I have below, but also added water chestnuts for a crispy bite and served over brown rice.

Orange Beef and Broccoli Recipe
adapted from

1 head of broccoli, steamed for 5 minutes
1/3 C fat-free, less-sodium beef broth
1/3 C low-sugar orange marmalade
2 Tbs low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 Tsp salt
2 Tbs cornstarch
1 (1-pound) flank steak, trimmed and cut into thin slices
Olive oil

Combine broth, marmalade, soy sauce, and salt in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk; set aside. Place cornstarch in a shallow dish. Dredge steak in cornstarch. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with olive oil. Add steak; sauté 5 minutes or until browned on all sides. Add broth mixture; cook 1 minute or until thick. Stir in broccoli (and 1 can of drained water chestnuts). Serve immediately (over brown rice).
