1 12 pounds beef top sirloin، thinly sliced 13 cup white sugar 13 cup vinegar 2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate 1 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1 cup long grain rice 2 cups water 14 cup cornstarch 2 teaspoons orange zest 3 tablespoons grated fresh ginger 1 12 tablespoons minced garlic 8 broccoli florets، lightly steamed or blanched 2 cups oil for frying
Lay beef strips out in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Allow to dry in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. In a small bowl، mix together the sugar، vinegar، orange juice concentrate، salt and soy sauce. Set aside. Meanwhile، combine rice and water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil، then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes، or until rice is tender. Add more water at the end if necessary. Heat oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Toss dried beef in cornstarch to coat. Fry in the hot oil in small batches until crispy and golden brown; set aside. Drain all of the oil from the wok except about 1 tablespoon. Add orange zest، ginger and garlic to the remaining oil، and cook briefly until fragrant. Add the soy sauce mixture to the wok، bring to a boil، and cook until thick and syrupy، about 5 minutes. Add beef، and heat through، stirring to coat. Serve immediately over steamed rice، and garnish with broccoli.
