Try this stir fried beef with tangerine if you want something that is a little bit different and dares to combine sweet and savoury flavours together.

Oranges are something I immediately think of using in a dessert, but I wanted to mix things up this time! This beef and tangerine stir fry is the perfect blend of sweet, citrus, salty and spicy notes.

This dish is also very quick to put together, only requiring 30 minutes of marinading time and using a few staple store cupboard ingredients.

Perfect for summer time, the dish is bold, bright and colourful to liven up all of your senses at once!

A bright and colourful dish for summertime.

Marinated beef served with juicy segments of tangerine.

Goes great with either egg noodles or steamed rice.
