4 medium tangerines
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound boneless beef top sirloin steak -- thinly sliced crosswise
2 1/8 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 pounds broccoli -- cut into flowerets, stems peeled and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
3 Medium green onions -- cut diagonally into
1 Medium red pepper -- thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic -- minced
1 Tablespoon minced -- peeled fresh ginger
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 Teaspoon crushed red pepper

Preparation / Directions:

1. Cut peel and white pith from 1 tangerine. Over small bowl, cut on either side of membranes to remove each segment from tangerine or orange, allowing fruit and juice to drop into bowl; set aside. From remaining fruit, with vegetable peeler, remove eight 3-inch-long strips peel (about 3/4 inch wide each). With knife, remove any white pith from peel. Squeeze 3/4 cup juice. 2. In 12-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil over high heat until hot. Add strips of peel and cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Remove peel to large bowl. 3. Meanwhile, on waxed paper, toss beef slices with 2 tablespoons cornstarch to coat evenly. Cook half of beef until crisp and lightly browned on both sides, about 5 minutes; remove to bowl with peel. Repeat with remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and remaining beef. 4. Add broccoli and 2 tablespoons water to skillet. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook 2 minutes. Increase heat to high. Remove cover and add green onions and red pepper; cook 2 minutes, stirring. Add garlic and ginger; cook 1 minute longer. 5. Meanwhile, in cup, stir juice, soy sauce, crushed red pepper, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch until blended. 6. Add juice mixture and cook until sauce thickens slightly and boils, stirring. Return beef mixture to skillet. Add citrus segments with any juice in bowl; gently toss to combine. Why order takeout when you can make this popular dish at home? Serve with hot fluffy rice.
