Some tips and tricks:
If you don’t want to use orange juice and zest you can swap out for some orange marmalade. (cut sugar back if you do this)

Don’t cook the steak for too long, it will get tough. High heat for a very short period of time on each side.

Don’t crowd the pan. The beef needs to get crisp and if you add it at one time it’ll steam and get gummy instead.

If you want a richer deeper sesame flavor, add a teaspoon of sesame oil in with the orange juice.

Tools Used in the making of the Crispy Orange Beef:
Wok: Great for high heat, quick cooking. This wok is a great addition to your kitchen if you love cooking Chinese food or stir fries in general.

Large Frying Pan: I use this Cuisinart for most of my non cast iron cooking unless I am going with a stainless steel option, then I choose my All Clad.

Soy Sauce: Nothing much to say here except Kikkoman has the best flavor overall and I always recommend reduced sodium.

Rice Vinegar: Readily available in almost all grocers these days, this is a great vinegar to keep on hand. It does have a hint of sweetness to it, so don’t replace with any other vinegar except perhaps a red wine vinegar if you absolutely need to.
