Crispy, Tender Orange Beef with Broccoli (Gluten-Free)

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.

  • 1 pounds beef top sirloin, thinly sliced into short strips
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hot chile paste
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced
  • 8 broccoli florets, steamed
  • 1½ cups oil for frying

Strain beef in a colander set over a large bowl, allowing beef to drain thoroughly, about 5 minutes. Reserve marinade.

Mix water and cornstarch. Whisk into the bowl of marinade until cornstarch is dissolved, set aside.

Heat oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Toss dried beef in cornstarch to coat. Fry in the hot oil in small batches until crispy and golden brown; set aside. Drain all except 1 tablespoon of the oil from the wok.

Add ginger, garlic, green onion and orange zest to the remaining oil, and cook briefly until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the soy sauce mixture to the wok, bring to a boil, and cook until thick and syrupy, about 3-5 minutes. Add beef, and heat through, stirring to coat. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

Serve with hot steamed broccoli and steamed white rice, and garnish with orange wedges.

I should have known this was going to be a train wreck as the directions did not make sense, and it called for 1 1/2 cups of oil, and also called for a whopping 1/4 cup cornstarch. This was one of the worst recipes I have ever made: the sauce was gloopy and thick, sickeningly sweet, with very little orange flavor: my son would not eat it, I barely could. Please rewrite the directions so that they make sense, particularly the part which reads "toss the dried beef with cornstarch." What cornstarch? I was instructed to mix it with water and stir into the leftover marinade. You might want to reword to add the reserved marinade instead of calling it soy sauce mixture. Remember that it had raw meat in it so it must be reheated thoroughly, but it was so thick it was pretty gross.

Thank you i have the colonoscopy on Tuesday and am dreading the prep more than anything lol. I think what ever the outcome I will try a gluten free diet to see if it helps with the symptoms. I've read so many stories of people going gluten free and symptoms such as depression, anxiety...

A positive on any one celiac test should lead to an endoscopy/biopsies being done by a gastroenterologist. You should keep eating gluten until the endoscopy is done.

Hi LexieA, It's perfectly ok to grieve or feel down because of a diagnosis of celiac disease. Feelings are not obligated to perform on command. But, over time you can adjust to the new diet reality and even like it. Getting used to eating mostly whole foods and more natural foods is a goo...

Hertzya, Congrats to you for sticking with your service in spite of celiac disease. That seems like it would be hard to do, And thanks for your service to our country!

Thank you all
