Crispy Orange Beef

Crispy Orange Beef

This Crispy Orange Beef is super easy to make and way better than take-out! Sticky-crispy-sweet crispy beef in orange sauce - so delicious and satisfying and ready in 25 minutes.

Have you ever tried crispy chilli beef? This recipe uses similar ingredients (soy sauce, garlic, sugar, ginger etc). However, replacing the lime juice with orange just adds such a great sweet-tangyness. Imagine deep-fried, crispy, golden brown and battered beef cubes doused in sticky, sweet, savory and tangy orange sauce.

It’s incredibly fragrant with the primary flavor being orange, but also has sesame oil, jalapeno, garlic, and ginger too. Not to mention the irresistible texture of the thin and crispy slices of beef. This crispy Orange Beef tastes so much better than Chinese takeout. Since it’s made fresh in your kitchen, there’s no soggy beef, and it has tons of flavor. It’s absolutely delicious and addictive, a dish that is our guilty pleasure at Chinese takeouts and restaurants all across the United States. Serve with steamed rice fried rice.
