• 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon canola oil, divided • 3 large eggs • 1 (11-ounce) can of mandarin oranges • 2 medium sweet red peppers, chopped • 1 cup fresh sugar snap peas, trimmed • 1 small onion, thinly sliced • 3 cloves garlic, minced • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes • 4 cups rice, cooked and cold • 2 cups beef, cooked and sliced against the grain into bite-sized pieces • 1 cup beef broth • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger


Step 1

In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat.

Step 2

Whisk the eggs until blended.

Step 3

Pour the beaten eggs into the skillet.

Step 4

As the eggs set, push the cooked portions of the egg toward the center, letting uncooked portions flow underneath the cooked portions.

Step 5

When the eggs have thickened and no liquid egg remains, transfer the eggs to a cutting board and chop.

Step 6

Drain the oranges, reserving 2 tablespoons of the juice.

Step 7

In the same skillet, heat the remaining teaspoon of oil over medium-high heat.

Step 8

Add the peppers, sugar snap peas, and onion, cooking until tender on the inside, about 1-2 minutes.

Step 9

Add the garlic and pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Step 10

Add the rice, beef, beef broth, soy sauce, salt, ginger, and the reserved juices and cook until heated through, for about 5 minutes.

Step 11

Gently stir in the eggs and oranges.
