  1. In a skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Drain the oranges, reserving syrup. Add syrup to the meat mixture; set oranges aside. Stir in 1 cup of water, soy sauce and ginger. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Combine cornstarch and remaining water until smooth; stir into meat mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add the celery, pepper, water chestnuts and mushrooms. Cover and cook over low heat for 5-7 minutes or until heated through. Serve over rice. Garnish with the oranges.

Footnotes

  • If you want to save time, you can make Mandarin Beef Skillet ahead and reheat it. But don't garnish with the mandarin oranges until just before serving.

I think I would like to use a different style of meat. Ground just doesn't seem have that nice meat taste. The meat doesn't hold the seasoning or mandarin orange taste.

Very tasty, but I used stir fry beef instead of ground beef.

Since I tend to not like the taste of canned fruits/vegetables, I used fresh mushrooms. I also left out the canned mandarin oranges - instead I used 1/2 cup OJ. I substituted beef broth for th...
