I've made this twice now, and second time's the charm. First, save yourself work: rather than cubing the meat, cut it into larger pieces and marinade all day. The larger pieces makes browning the meat go faster. I'm not even sure browning adds that much. Second, I used cider vinegar and cut down the orange juice by a third the second time I cooked it, giving it a more mellow and lass acidic flavor. Third, and this was special: This last time, when the meat was tender (and before thickening the sauce) I removed the meat from the pan, put the liquid through a fat separator, added enough water to bring it to 4 cups, brought it to a boil, added 2 cups well-rinsed basmati rice, cooked the rice until nearly done and returned the meat to the pan to re-heat. The rice was a beautiful color and had great flavor, with one less pan to clean. Serve with plain yogurt, if desired. Broccoli or cauliflower make good side dishes.
