    From the Test Kitchen

    Bright citrus is the star of this dish, thanks to the fresh navel orange juice we’re using in a sweet and savory soy-based sauce that coats tender beef and crisp bok choy. A bed of fluffy scallion rice is the perfect accompaniment to soak up all of the delicious, saucy bites.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Halve the orange; squeeze the juice into a medium bowl. Peel and finely chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop.

    Make the scallion rice
    2 Make the scallion rice

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a small pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Cover to keep warm.

    Meanwhile, to the bowl of orange juice, add the chopped garlic, vinegar, soy glaze, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Stir to combine.
