Instructions
  1. Remove the beef from the fridge and set out at room temp while you make the sauce. Place the orange juice, soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, cornstarch, garlic, 1/2 tsp salt, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
  2. Heat 1/2 Tbsp. oil in a large frying pan over high heat until shimmering. Add the beef and season with the remaining 1/2 tsp. salt and pepper. Press the meat into an even layer and cook undisturbed until the bottom is brown and crisped, about 4 minutes. Break up the meat with a wooden spoon, then press it into the pan to help it brown. Cook until well-browned and crisp all around, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a large paper towel lined plate.
  3. Drizzle the remaining olive oil around the pan. Add the orange zest, onion, and red pepper, and cook, stirring until slightly tender, about 3 minutes. Rewhisk the sauce, pour into the pan, and stir to coat the vegetables. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened, about 1 minute. Return the beef to the pan and stir to combine. Serve over rice and top with scallions. Enjoy!
