Fake out take out: spicy orange-ginger beef with broccoli

Usually as the month draws to a close, I get more creative with my cooking as I play "let's clean out the fridge/pantry/ freezer." Last night was no exception. We had beef and frozen broccoli and brown rice among other things and since my take out fake out cashew chicken was so well recieved I wanted to try another spin on faux Chinese food.

Ingredients

3/4 pound beef for stir fry
1 large package frozen broccoli
1 1/2 cups brown rice
3 tbsn soy sauce
2 tspn ginger
2 tbsn minced garlic
1 tbsn chili paste
1/3 c orange juice
1/2 onion, chopped
2 tbsn oil

Directions
Note: If possible, marinate beef in 2 tbsn soy sauce for a few hours

1. Cook brown rice according to package

2. Saute onion and garlic for 2 minutes in oil. Add soy sauce, ginger and beef and cook until beef is done. Add broccoli and cook for 2 minutes before adding orange juice and chili paste. Cook 1-2 more minutes.

3. Serve over rice.

Cook's notes:

1. You can do the ingredients in any order and add more chili paste if you like it spicy.

2. Mr. Snowgoose loved it!
