 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 lbs. beef cut into very thin strips
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 3 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1 inch fresh ginger peeled and grated
  • 1 1/2 cups carrots sliced thinly
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas
  • 1 lb. broccoli cut into small florets
  • 1 can sliced water chestnuts drained
  • 4-5 tbsp. avocado oil divided use
  • steamed cooked rice
  • 1 naval orange quartered, for garnish, if desired
  • sesame seeds and sliced green onions for garnish
  • 3-4 tbsp. soy sauce (I use Tamari gluten free low sodium sauce
  • 1 tbsp. oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 3 heaping tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp. water


Heat a few tablespoon of avocado oil in a wok or very large skillet.
Add the beef and sauté.
Season generously with salt, black pepper and add the sesame seeds.
Cook until beef is fork tender.
While beef is cooking, parboil carrots in a pot of water about 3-5 minutes until partially cooked through. (Or microwave on high about 5 minutes).
Meanwhile, mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, orange marmalade and beef broth, and set aside.
Combine cornstarch and water and set aside.
Remove beef and sesame residue from the skillet.
Heat a few more tablespoons of avocado oil in the skillet.
Add the garlic and ginger and sauté about a minute.
Then add parboiled carrots, fresh broccoli, and fresh sugar snap peas and sauté a few minutes until almost desired doneness.
Transfer beef and sesame seeds back into the skillet.
Add the Orange Sesame Sauce ingredients.
Sauté and cook for about 5 minutes so all the meat and veggies are well-coated with the Orange Sesame Sauce.
Add the water chestnuts, and stir to combine.
Stir in the cornstarch mixture.
Allow sauce to thicken and veggies to cook until crisp-tender then remove from heat.
Serve Orange Sesame Beef over rice.
Garnish with more sesame seeds, sliced green onions and fresh naval oranges quartered, as desired.
Mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, orange marmalade and beef broth, and set aside.
Add with stir fry after vegetables and meet are sauteed.
