Nutritional Information (from recipe): 273 calories, 12 g protein, 8 g fat, 37 g carbohydrates, 54 mg calcium, 226 mg sodium, 23 mg cholesterol, 1 g dietary fiber (fiber figure does not include sesame seeds). I doubled the main ingredients (beef, rice and vegetables). I doubled the amounts of soy sauce and vinegar (I didnt have rice vinegar, so used white wine vinegar) and added sesame oil to (my) taste – probably a dash more than 1/2 tsp. Completely forgot the peanut oil and it didnt seem to make any difference. I didnt have mandarin oranges, but had some canned Clementines (more tart than mandarins) and used them.
  • Oriental Beef Salad is ready to serve.

Bring to the boil and then lower heat and partially cover with a lid. The rice should take about 10 minutes to cook. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Now for the stir-fry. Heat the oil in a wok over a medium heat. Fry the garlic and chili flakes for 30 seconds. Add the broccolini and fry for about 2 minutes. Add the rest of the vegetables and ginger and fry for 3 minutes.
  • Now add the soy sauce and fish sauce. Stir well to coat the vegetables. Add the 1/2 cup of water with dissolved cornstarch. Stir well to mix together the liquids.
  • Give the vegetables one more stir for 30 seconds. The liquid will start to thicken. Add the macadamia nuts and then serve stir-fry on a bed of rice.
