1 lb beef sirloin sliced into long strips
3 Tbsp olive oil
4 carrots, chopped
3/4 cup beef broth
2 Tbsp soy sauce or wheat free tamari
2 tsp grated orange peel
1 tsp ground ginger
3 Tbsp corn starch, divided use
2 Tbsp water
1/8 tsp salt (optional)
4 cups cooked rice


Combine 2 tablespoons of corn starch and water in a medium sized bowl and stir. Add strips of beef to the bowl and coat with mixture.

In a skillet, cook strips of beef with 2 Tbsp of oil. Remove from heat and keep warm.

Add 1 more Tbsp of oil to skillet and stir fry the carrots for about 5 minutes.

Place remaining corn starch in a bowl and stir in broth. Add soy sauce, orange peel and ginger. Add beef back to skillet and stir in broth mixture. Cook about 2 more minutes or until thickened. Serve over rice.


This is a wonderfully flavorful dish that the whole family can enjoy. Perfect even in the summer because it's done on the stove top.


Make sure to use wheat-free/gluten-free soy sauce or tamari if avoiding wheat and gluten.
Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.
Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.
