  1. In a small bowl, mix together 1/4 cup of the reserved juice, molasses, soy sauce, ginger and cornstarch. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Saute broccoli florets and one can of mandarin oranges until the broccoli is heated through. The oranges will almost dissolve. Stir in the molasses mixture, and continue to cook while tossing the broccoli to coat until the broccoli is tender, about 3 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat, and toss broccoli with the remaining can of oranges. Transfer to a serving plate, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Nice recipe, easy to make, interesting concept. Maybe because of the way I measured it, I found the molasses flavor a little strong. If I do this again I would reduce the molasses to one tablespoon (overflowing). I would also reduce the sesame seeds to one tablespoon.

Didn't like this dish--the flavors of the sauce don't complement the broccoli--everything felt like it was clashing.

This was fabulous! My husband even went back for seconds (and he NEVER has seconds on broccoli). My teenage daughter loved it too! I added some green onion right before adding the sauce. Turned out great!

Very flavorfull and something different. Had to leave out the seaseme seads do to an allergy but was still really good.

I am not sure why, but ours had a bitter taste to it and no one would eat it. Aside from the bitterness, the flavors blended together well.

Sorry but this recipe doesn't even beat plain buttered broccoli. The oranges don't do a thing for it. I'll go back to adding a cheesy sauce like Cheez whiz with salsa.

I am trying this recipe but altering it slightly. Using honey instead of molasses (I feel molasses is far too strong for this), adding a touch of garlic, reducing the amount of peanut oil and am using an asian stirfry frozen veggie mix with soybeans in it to make this a main dish served over brown rice. I am not sure exactly how it will turn out, but having made similar things before, it sounds like a hit. I love using the mandarin oranges as part of the sauce as I don't usually keep orange juice on hand but those I do...this makes it an easy, easy dish to whip up.
