    • ⅓ cup butter

    Wash the broccoli, and place into a steamer, or a large pot with about 1 inch of water in the bottom. 

    Cover the pot, bring to a boil, and steam for 7 minutes,  until tender, yet still crisp. 

    Drain, and arrange broccoli on a large shallow dish or serving plate.

    While the broccoli is steaming, melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. 

    Stir in the brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, pepper and garlic. 

    Stir until the mixture comes to a boil, stirring, then immediately remove from the heat. 

    Stir in the cashews, mix until well-coated with sauce, and pour over the broccoli. 

    Serve over rice, or alone as a side to your favorite entrée.

    Celiac.com 06/06/2013 - Along with lemon chicken, orange beef is one of my many favorite Chinese dishes. In the days before I went gluten-free, I ordered orange beef whenever I got the chance. Now, like many other dishes, many restaurants dredge their beef in wheat flour when making Orange Beef, so I've grown much more careful. As a result, I don't get nearly as much orange beef as I used to.
    My main solution has been to learn to make it at home. This recipe delivers a tasty, satisfying gluten-free version of orange beef that is sure to be a hit with your most discriminating eaters.
