Orange Beef Stir-Fry

Fresh sugar pods from the garden and this recipe caught my eye. I think I would step up the ginger and orange zest a little next time. So there may be a few adjustments still to this recipe, but John liked it...so it's getting posted.

1 tablespoon plus teaspoon soy sauce

2 beef boullion cubes2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
1 teaspoon granulated sugar

In a bowl dissolve cornstarch in soy sauce and stir in broth, zest and sugar.
In a kettle of salted boiling water cook noodles until tender and drain well.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir-fry beef, patted dry and seasoned with salt and pepper, until browned, and transfer to bowl.

Add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil to skillet and stir-fry garlic, ginger root, and snow peas just until peas are steamed.

Stir cornstarch mixture and add to snow peas, stirring. Simmer mixture until thickened and stir in beef with any juices accumulated in bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
