Step 1

With vegetable peeler, remove 3 (4-inch) strips zest from one of the oranges; thinly slice strips on diagonal. With knife, remove peel and pith from both oranges. Holding orange over small bowl to catch juice, cut along either side of each membrane to release orange sections, allowing juice to fall into bowl. Repeat.

Whisk together 1/3 cup of broth, the orange juice, soy sauce, cornstarch, and pepper flakes in small bowl until blended.

Heat wok or large deep nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until a drop of water sizzles in pan. Add oil and swirl to coat wok. Add beef and stir-fry until lightly browned, about 4 minutes; transfer to plate.

Add beans, bell pepper, orange zest, and remaining 1/2 cup broth to wok. Cook, covered, 2 minutes. Uncover and add scallions, ginger, and garlic; stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Re-whisk cornstarch mixture. Return beef to wok along with orange sections and cornstarch mixture. Stir-fry until sauce bubbles and thickens, about I minute. Serve with rice.
