Orange Beef and Beans

Orange Beef and Beans

"'Green beans are one of my all-time favorite vegetables--I can cook them more ways than ground beef, and this dish showcases them beautifully,' writes Sundra Hauck from Bogalusa, Louisiana. Orange juice adds zesty flavor to the sirloin steak and garden-fresh beans."
