I cooked with flank steak for the first time a couple months ago and since then I have become obsessed with it. It’s easy, delicious, and so versatile!
I suppose this Orange Beef and Broccoli is a take-off of Chinese food but this is so much tastier than any orange dish I’ve had from a Chinese place. The sauce is exploding with orange flavor without the goopyness that take-out orange sauce has. It coats the beef and broccoli perfectly!
This had been on my “Make When the Husband Leaves” list but I am officially transferring it to the “Make When the Husband Comes Home” list! I absolutely adored it and had no problem eating it for lunch 3 days in a row.

Orange Beef and Broccoli
adapted from Pinch of Yum
- juice of 1 orange
- 1 tablespoon fresh orange zest
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- ⅓ cup orange marmalade
- 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ¼ - ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon oil
- 1 pound flank steak, very thinly sliced
- 1 head broccoli, washed and cut into bite-sized pieces
- In a small bowl, whisk the orange juice, orange zest, soy sauce, orange marmalade, rice wine vinegar, garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, and cornstarch until the cornstarch has dissolved. Set aside.
- Boil or steam the broccoli for just a few minutes, until tender crisp.
- Heat the oil in a skillet over high heat. Add the flank steak and stir-fry it until the pieces of nice and browned.
- Give the sauce one more stir and add it to the pan with the steak; stir until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in broccoli. Serve over rice.

I love flank steak but hate its price tag… (not sure what its like else where but around here its been crazy high lately). I watch it like a hawk at the market waiting for a sale price. We love making Chinese inspired dishes at home – everything just tastes so much fresher and I use it as a way to pack extra veggies in.

I made Lindsay’s orange beef and broccoli and I loved it! It’s definitely one of those quick weeknight meals that you can make over and over.
I love take out at home, and flank steak is definitely a winner. Great flavors here!

Wow. I don’t want to say much else because I am salivating so much I am afraid that the drool will drop onto my keyboard and short out my PC!
Mmm for how often I used to make stir frys I so rarely these days. Looks good enough to lick the screen. Not that I did or anything…
I love flank steak too! I just wish it wasn’t so darn expensive here. When it eventually goes on sale I’m stocking up! I am so excited to try this recipe :)
I want this for dinner tonight!!
