Orange Peel Beef

Orange Peel Beef, Pan Fried Noodles, Pistachio Fluff Salad

Orange Peel Beef
Prepare sauce: Peel thin strips of orange peel from one orange. Combine with 1/2C honey and the juice of half an orange. Add one diced jalapeno pepper. Let sit for 30 minutes.
Marinate 1/2 pound thinly sliced beef steak strips in the following mixture: 1/2C cream soda, 3T oil, 1t buffalo sauce, 2T sliced fresh ginger, 1t garlic salt, juice of half an orange, 1t dried and diced red chili peppers. Let sit for 1 hour.
Drain meat and stir fry in hot oil. Add sauce and 1/2C green pea pods. Cook until sauce is heated. Serves two.

With the exception of the kitchen fire, the meal turned out pretty well. (Be sure to drain the meat well before adding to the hot oil. I had flames reaching to the ceiling! My husband is used to the smoke detector going off when I cook but I must say, this was a bit more exciting.) I made up the recipe myself and I thought it was pretty good. It was not as good as P.F.Chang's version yet still tasty. My children thought it was too spicy but my husband enjoyed it.
