  1. Place the water, bell peppers, cabbage, cauliflower, and onion in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cover and steam until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Pound each piece of the chuck to 1/2 inch thick, cut into quarters. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in beef, and cook, turning frequently, until browned on all sides; remove from pan.
  2. Drizzle the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil into the pan and stir in the orange sections, zest, and green onion. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Toss meat and vegetables together with the orange in the pan. Stir in teriyaki and oyster sauce. Continue cooking for an additional minute, stirring constantly.

the flavors of this particular stir-fry were decent, but it was a pain to collect all of the ingredients and i've had much better. Easier sauces and easier to find veggies.

The only recipe I could find using a purple cauliflower! I used purple cabbage instead of green and added 1 tablespoon of hot chili sauce and 1 tablespoon of black bean garlic sauce. It added some much needed heat. Really good!

This stir fry was Great! I used shrimp,asparagus and yellow squash. Any vegetable you have available will be just right in here. Super fast I went to the local Chinese take out and bought some chow mein to go with it. I will make this again! Thank You Sarah.

I enjoyed this except that I steamed the veggies too long. My hubby wasn't as fond of the orange taste as I was , so I may just stick to using the teriyaki and oyster sauce without oranges next time... Thanks:)

I though this was great. I am a fan of stir fry's with tons of vegetables and this satisfied me greatly. I got lots of compliments. I really like the hint of orange flavor, it was not overpowering and gave it an extra sweetness. The only changes I made were using more Teriyaki sauce (I didn't think 1/3 cup was enough for all the vege's) and to reduce the cooking time when first steaming the vegetables. I would use more like 5 minutes as I like mine still crispy. All in all a very tasty recipe.

This was good. I didn't really get much orange flavor out of it, and I think the veggies would have been good with half of the amount of steaming time. As is, just ok.
