Citrus Beef

June 17, 2010

If you are looking for a quick and easy way to liven up a salad or just a different twist on a main dish for dinner, try this recipe for citrus beef.  I used pre-sliced beef loin that most markets carry for stir-fry dishes, because I knew I wanted to add it to my salad. You could easily substitute some steaks or whatever cut of meat (or even poultry) you enjoy most!

You will need…

  • 1 large navel orange
  • 1 lime
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 T Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 t honey
  • 1/2 lb beef loin
  • Pepper

Then you…

  1. Zest and juice the orange, lime and lemon into a small bowl.  Add the mustard and honey, season heartily with pepper, and whisk to combine.
  2. Place the beef in a large ziplock bag and add in the marinade.  Seal and shake to coat the meat.  Allow to sit for at least 15 minutes.
  3. Heat a large non-stick skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat.  Coat with cooking spray. Drain excess marinade from bag and add the beef to the hot skillet. Cook until it reaches your desired level of done-ness (I like mine medium-rare, so it only took a couple of minutes).

You could easily add some grated fresh garlic and/or ginger to this marinade for a new twist on the dish!
