orange ginger beef
adapted from chefmichaelsmith

ingredients

A splash vegetable oil
1 pound stewing beef, cubed
a sprinkle or two Salt and Pepper
2 onions, peeled and chopped
1″ piece of ginger, grated
1 10 ounce can beef broth
1 cup orange juice
1 cup orange marmalade
A generous splash soy sauce
1 tablespoon five-spice powder
A sprinkle or two Salt and Pepper
1x 10 ounce bag baby spinach
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 handful cilantro leaves

instructions

Preheat a large pot over a medium-high heat and then splash in enough oil to thinly coat the bottom. Season, then sear the meat until it’s evenly browned on all sides. Remove the meat and set aside for a moment.

Add the onions and ginger and stir for a few minutes until they are lightly browned. If the pan starts to burn, add a splash of water and continue.

Return the meat to the pot and add the beef broth, orange juice, marmalade, soy sauce and five-spice powder. Bring the works to a simmer and then reduce the heat to the lowest setting that will maintain the simmer. Place a tight-fitting lid on the pot to contain the tenderizing steam. Continue simmering until the meat is tender enough to break into smaller pieces, about 1 hour. Taste and season the broth.

Stir the spinach, green onions and cilantro leaves into the stew.
