Citrus BeefJune 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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
