  • 1-1/2 pounds flank steak, cut into 1-inch strips
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil, Wesson
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic, McCormick
  • 1/2 cup orange marmalade, Smucker's
  • 1 cup low-sodium beef broth, Swanson
  • 10 small dried Thai chiles
  • 1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce, Kikkoman
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch


1. Season flank steak strips with salt and pepper, then toss with flour. Shake off excess flour.

2. Add oil to a large skillet until 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep. Heat oil to 365 degree F. Working in batches, fry flour-coated steak strips until deep golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. (DO NOT crowd pan.) Drain on paper towels. Set aside and keep warm.

3. For sauce, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, saute garlic in oil until fragrant. (Do not let the garlic brown.) Add orange marmalade, 1/2 cup beef broth, the chiles, and soy sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. In a small bowl, stir cornstarch into remaining 1/2 cup beef broth. Stir cornstarch mixture into simmering sauce. Return to simmer for 3 to 4 minutes until sauce thickens.

4. Pour sauce over beef and serve. Makes 4 servings.
