Orange Stirfry Beef

I make this, like, every other week. It's also great made with lemons, and it's not bad without the citrus or with a little hot chili oil in place of the citrus, just depending on what you have on hand.

Good with brown rice and snow peas (stir-fried quickly till they turn bright green).

1 lb flank steak
1 Tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp black soy
1.5 tsp sweet or ground bean sauce (CAREFUL with the type of bean sauce.)
2 tsp rice wine

Slice the steak into thin pieces across the grain and marinate up to overnight.

Zest of 1 or 2 oranges or lemons
1 tsp minced ginger
2 tsp minced garlic
3 diced green onions

2 tsp rice wine

2 tsp sugar
0.5 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp black soy
1 or 2 tsp orange or lemon juice

Take your marinated beef out of the fridge. (Make rice and snow peas now.) Stir-fry beef quick and hot (you're almost searing the beef into little caramelized steaklets). Pull beef out into plate or bowl. Put aromatics in pan and sizzle 'em around a little bit. Return the beef to the pan with 2 tsp rice wine, then add the sauce mixture and stir-fry till it thickens up.
