What’s For Dinner? Orange Stir Fry Beef

This post was created by Carolyn Hodges of The Dinner Shift. This recipe was inspired by Heinen’s What’s for Dinner?, a weekly meal guide with simple ingredients and step-by-step instructions. 

If you’re looking for a quick, easy and healthy weeknight dinner option, Heinen’s has you covered with this Orange Stir Fry Beef – another one of their What’s for Dinner featured recipes. With lean sirloin, fresh vegetables and brown rice, it’s protein-packed, full of fiber and totally satisfying. It’s also easy to customize. You can swap in Gerber’s chicken breast tenders for the beef, or make it meatless by doubling up on the vegetables and adding tofu or edamame.

Thanks to a couple pre-prepped ingredients, a flavorful sauce and heat-and-eat rice, this dinner practically cooks itself (and only requires one pan!). Brown a package of Heinen’s beef stir fry strips, then toss in their fresh stir fry vegetables and some Two Brothers Mandarin Orange Sauce. Serve it over microwavable brown rice and you’ve got dinner on the table in about 15 minutes!
