Orange Beef Stir Fry

“Found this in a magazine and made a few changes to better suit my family. It's great for left over steak or for a quick week night meal. The original recipe called for coating the steak strips with a tablespoon of cornstarch. I skip this because I don't like the way it affects the texture of the meat but it does make for a nice thickened sauce so you may want to try it. You could also use cornstarch in the actual sauce to thicken it. Also, feel free to add onions or mushrooms or any other veggies you prefer.”
