- Recipe Instructions (Steps for Orange-Glazed Beef Flank Steak with Crispy Vegetables) ↓
From the beginning, I’ll let you know that you should go to the supermarket in order to find all the required ingredients. This recipe requires medium cooking skills, ingredients you will only find in the supermarket or hypermarket (some of them), but surely these efforts will be appreciated by those who will taste this professional dish of Orange-Glazed Beef with Crisp Vegetables. In this recipe, I didn’t write what kind of frozen vegetables I used because you can choose anything you want. For example, the Mexican mix is a choice, also the Asian mix can be great for this type of dish (the recipe uses also soy sauce). As for the meat, I used beef flank steak because it adds a better taste and goes well with the veggies (no matter what mix of vegetables you’re using). Another great thing for orange-glazed beef is that you only need +/- 30 minutes to prepare and cook it
Even if I do recommend crispy veggies as a side dish, if you want to change them I have only two variations in my mind. The first one is the Spanish Rice that brings with it an awesome flavor and goes well with the orange-glazed beef. Following the recipe’s steps accordingly, you’ll have an extraordinary Spanish rice side dish that has a lot of great reviews. Although it is called “Spanish rice“, this dish is virtually unknown in Spain. Maybe here is the confusion among people who search for this particular recipe. Mexicans or Mexican food lovers don’t use the term “Spanish rice”, the dish is usually known simply as Arroz (“rice“) or Arroz-Rojo (“red rice“) in Mexico.
Another variation for a side dish is my recipe for Special Wedges Fries for Steak. The special wedges fries are especially “invented” for steaks, but can be eaten also simple (not in our case). the Special Wedges Fries is the best side-dish you can choose for Steak (beef or pork). Simple as it is, the recipe has the best-picked ingredients and the quantity is well balanced. This dish doesn’t nullify the steak taste, it adds another flavor that makes the main course tastier, in our case Orange-Glazed Beef.
Besides the great taste and beautiful design, the orange-glazed beef steak can be eaten during a weight-loss diet, having only 273 Calories and only 7.88 g of fat. There is a “but” tough, you should not eat too much of this extraordinary dish. Even though it has low calories and fat, it is not specifically designed for weight loss, however, it can be served once every two weeks.
Because of orange glaze, I do not recommend freezing the steak… only if you’ll prepare the steak without the orange glaze .. but then, what is the purpose of this recipe? For refrigerating it, the orange-glazed beef steak can be placed in the refrigerator in a plastic bag, but do not keep it there for more than 3 days.
I'm sorry you didn't like it 🙁

Prepare the vegetables
Cut the onion, garlic, ginger, and lightly beat the eggs white. Thaw frozen vegetables in the microwave (or place the entire bag in a bowl of hot water for about 10 minutes). Set aside until step 7.
Prepare the onion, garlic, and ginger
Heat oil in a large wok or sauté pan. Add onion, garlic, and ginger and stir fry until tender but not brown, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Prepare the beef flank steak
If you want, slice the beef meat into thin strips. Put the eggs white in one bowl and cornstarch in another. Dip steak strips into the eggs white and then coat with cornstarch. Add steak strips to the pan and continue to stir fry until steak strips are lightly browned about 5–8 minutes.
Add the orange glaze
Add Hoisin sauce, soy sauce, orange juice, and sherry (optional), and bring to a boil over high heat. Immediately lower temperature to a gentle simmer.
Add the vegetables
Add the thawed vegetables and mix gently. Simmer until vegetables are heated through, about 3–4 minutes. Divide mixture into four equal portions (about 2 cups each) and serve. Enjoy!
