Orange Beef and Lo Mein

Orange Beef with Broccoli Lo Mein

       Again I am on another Chinese food kick.  I decided to make my version of Orange Beef with a Lo Mein.  This dish is so simple and bursts with citrus flavor that before your friends get to have any you have already finished off the whole amount.  The dish is quick and requires very little ingredients and time.  A quick lo mein sauce with sautéd broccoli is a great light accompaniment to this beef.  This Orange Beef recipe is enough for 2-3 people.


  • 1lb beef sirloin cut into thin strips
  • Fresh broccoli spears
  • Lo Mein noodles
  • 5 slices fresh ginger minced
  • 1/2 tbs Hoisin sauce
  • 1 lg orange
  • 4 tbs soy
  • 2 tbs oyster sauce
  • 1 tbs sesame oil
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • vegetable oil

        In a pot of water cook lo mein noodles according to package.  Drain and set aside. In a small bowl mix together 3 tbs of soy, 2 tbs of oyster sauce, and the 1 tbs of sesame oil to make the sauce for the lo mein. Pour into the noodles to coat. Slice sirloin into thin strips and coat with the cornstarch. In a small bowl mix together the hoisin and juice of the large orange and sit aside as this will be the sauce for the beef. Meanwhile in a hot wok over medium heat sauté broccoli in a bit of vegetable oil. Drizzle in the last tbs of soy.  Cook just until they are a bit soft.  Mix into the noodles. In same wok cook beef in a little bit of vegetable oil until brown and cooked through.  Remove and sat aside.  Again in same wok sauté the minced ginger in a little bit of oil.  Mix in hoisin orange sauce and cook just for a second as it will thicken quickly.  Toss back in the beef and coat.  Serve over the broccoli low mein mixture.  Enjoy!
