    4 servings - 1 cup each

    3/4 pound beef top round, trimmed of all visible fat, cut into thin strips
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    2 teaspoons grated orange rind
    1/2 cup low-sodium beef broth
    1/4 cup orange juice
    2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1-1/2 teaspoon chili-garlic sauce or 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    4 teaspoons canola oil
    1 talbespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
    1/4 pound green beans, halved crosswise
    1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into thin strips
    1 carrot, cut into matchstick-thin strips

    1. Combine the beef, 1 tablespoon of the cornstarch, and the orange rind in a medium bowl; toss well to coat and set aside. Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon cornstarch, the broth, orange juice, soy sauce, sugar, and chili-garlic sauce or crushed red pepper in a small bowl; set aside.

    2. heat a non stick wok or a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until a drop of water sizzles. Swirl in 2 teaspoons of the oil, then add the beef. Stir-fry until cooked through, 2-3 minutes; transfer to a plate. Swirl the remaining 2 teaspoons oil, then add the ginger. Stir-fry until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add the green beans, bell pepper, and carrot. Stir-fry until crisp-tender, 2-3 minutes. Add the broth mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils and thickens, about 1 minute. Add the beef and cook until hot, about 1 minute.

    I'm making this tonight, its sounds awesome.
    It is awesome. I did not use orange rind or ginger. I added minced garlic and the meat was marinaring in a honey teriaki mixture. I'll make this again really soon.
