Instructions

Prep the ingredients

  • Slice the beef against the grain into thin strips. Cut the broccoli into medium sized florets. Rinse the Jasmine rice until the water runs clear. Pre-heat the Ninja Foodi on Air Crisp at 400° F, with the fry basket that came with the Ninja Foodi. 
  • Zest and juice the three oranges and grate about 1 ½" of fresh ginger until you have 2 tsp. 

Make the Marinade

  • Make the marinade by combining 2 Tbsp sesame oil, 1 tsp salt, 1 Tablespoon of red pepper paste, and the zest from one orange. Combine marinade with beef strips in plastic baggy. Marinate beef for about 15 minutes. Allow to come to room temp. 

Air Crisp the Beef

  • Add the corn starch to the meat mixture and massage until you can no longer see the corn starch. 
  • Put the meat into the hot basket and spread out for even heating. Toss the meat around every 5 minutes and air crisp for about 15 minutes. The edges should be a bit crispy. Remove and set to the side. 

Make the Rice & Broccoli

  • Lightly butter the bottom of a 6" cake pan or other pressure safe dish, combine 1 cup of rinsed rice with ¾ cup water. Cover. I like to use a bamboo steamer basket, see post for details. 
  • Add 2 cups of water to the inner pot of the Ninja Foodi and set the pan of rice on the rack in the low position. Put the pressure lid on and make sure the black seal is set to seal. Set the Ninja Foodi to LOW pressure for 3 minutes. When the time is up, immediately release the steam. 
  • Add the broccoli florets to the second layer of the bamboo steamer basket or another pressure safe pan. Stack the broccoli and the rice with the rice on top and not covered. 
  • Set the Ninja Foodi to steam and make sure the black valve is set to vent. Set the time to 5 minutes. Remove when done and dump the water. Rinse the Inner Pot. 
  • Lightly fluff the rice and cover to keep warm.

Make the Sauce

  • Set the Ninja Foodi to high saute and combine sauce ingredients. Cook on high saute for about 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens. You should be able to scrape the bottom with a plastic scraper and the sauce will stay off of the bottom where you scraped for a few seconds. 

Complete the Orange Beef & Broccoli

  • Add the beef and the broccoli into the sauce and stir to combine for a minute or so. Just to warm the beef and broccoli. 
  • Serve the Orange Beef & Broccoli with the Jasmine rice. Enjoy!

Notes

Tip: Freeze your beef for an hour or two before slicing to make it easier to get thin slices.
