Ingredients

  • 1 capicola, sliced into slices
  • 1 big carrot, peeled and sliced into matchsticks
  • 1.5 cup pea sugar
  • 1 finely chopped tiny onion
  • 1 1/2 pounds of sirloin, or thinly cut chuck steaks
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil

Ingredients for salt water:

  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 tbsp. sesame oil
  • four tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (from shredded oranges)
  • 3 tablespoons grated orange peel, 1 orange, grated

For starters:

  • Optional sesame seeds or green onions

Instructions

  • In a large mixing basin, combine all of the seasoning ingredients and toss thoroughly.
  • Chop the grains and cut the steak into extremely thin pieces. Mix up the steaks with the marinade. Refrigerate for 30 minutes while preparing the veggies.
  • Rinse and remove the cover from the peas, then finely cut the onion into cubes, followed by the carrots and pepper.
  • Over high heat, heat a heavy-bottomed skillet or a decent frying pan. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of cooking oil to the heated skillet. Add onions right away (while stirring constantly for 1 minute).
  • Reserve the marinade and drain the meat. Stir frequently for 2-3 minutes after adding the drained meat. (Note: If you scrape the steak all at once, the pan will cool fast; instead, turn the beef to prevent the liquid from escaping.) Add the remaining sauce to the skillet.
  • Continue cooking over high heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring often, or until the veggies soften and the sauce thickens. Serve on top of a bed of steaming white rice.
