So I have the best Wednesday dinner.

And also, possibly the best hangover cure for any of you that celebrated Mardi Gras yesterday, and had well… a lot of fun.

Yeah, this is the dinner for that. But really, when isn’t Chinese the dinner that cures all? It pretty much never fails.

And by the time Wednesday rolls around I am pretty sure we all need a meal that never fails and is ready in under an hour (actually it takes just about thirty minutes – yeah!).

But I feel that by the time Wednesday rolls around the excitement for the weekend starts to build.

We have hit hump day.

Thursday is practically here.

Which means only just a little bit longer until Friday.

Which means we can maybe, possibly, ditch work by four and be ready for the weekend by five.

Which then means it’s party time…um or couch time?!

At least that’s how I see it.

So yeah, Wednesday is a good day dontcha think?

I am particular fond of THIS Wednesday because I get to give you this recipe for orange beef. And, because the Chinese New Year is tomorrow. And yes, I will be talking more Chinese tomorrow too. Well, I will not actually be talking in Chinese because I am not that talented, but I have got more Chinese food on the way.

But let’s just start with this Orange Teriyaki Beef with Pineapple Edamame Fried Rice…

I paired the beef with a kind of tropical fried rice because, as you will come to see, I am feeling extra tropical lately. Plus, pineapples were on sale, ten for ten dollars, at my grocery store the other week and yeah, you know… I bought ten!!

I know I didn’t actually have to buy ten to get them for a dollar each, but I wanted ten. They where beautiful and I could not resist. It’s safe to say I have been eating my weight in pineapples lately. And also? I love that tropical fruits like pineapples and mangos are in season during the winter. They keep me happy. I know I buy them year-round, but they are surely best right now.

Love them.

Double also, I know that just this past Monday I told you that I am still loving the snow, but then it snowed all day and I was freezing. I will not lie, I still love the snow, but I am now finding myself dreaming of tropical places.

You knew it would happen. But hey, I am still liking the snow…just also thinking Hawaii sounds kind of nice too (but then again when doesn’t Hawaii sound nice?!?).

And now I am daydreaming when I should be talking about your dinner.

Sorry, back on track.

The meal? It’s kind of perfect. Quick, easy, healthy, so flavorful and full of my favorite thing. Citrus!! Well, among one of my favorite things. It seems I have a lot of favorite things lately.

So I mean, there is not really much else to say. It’s a pretty straight forward and simple recipe. You may even have a lot of the ingredients in your pantry right now. Ya whoooo!! The flavor is so delicious. It’s sweet and tangy with just a little spice added and the textures are spot on. Plus, you get to top this dinner with fresh orange flavors. It’s so good and kind of pretty too, which I love.

Pineapple Edamame Fried Rice

  • 3 cups leftover rice or fresh
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh pineapple diced
  • 1 cup shelled edamame
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 2-3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 green onions chopped


  • To make the rice, heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons sesame oil, the pineapple, shelled edamame and cashews. Cook until caramelized, about 5 minutes. Remove from the skillet and place on a plate. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and the rice, cook 5 minutes or until the rice is toasted. Stir in the pineapple, edamame and cashews. Add the soy sauce and green onions, toss well. Remove from the heat and keep warm.
  • To make the beef, in a square baking dish or gallon size ziplock bag, combine the orange juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, rice wine, ginger, garlic and honey. Add the sliced beef and allow it to sit in the marinade for 10-30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, whisk the corn starch with 1/4 cup cold water.
  • Heat a large skillet or wok over medium high heat, add a drizzle of oil. Remove the beef from the marinade (do not throw the marinade away). Add the beef in batches to the hot skillet and sear until just browned and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from the skillet and repeat with any remaining beef. Once all the beef has been cooked, add a little oil if needed and then add the mushrooms + broccoli. Cook for about 5 minutes or until just tender. Pour the reserved marinade and the Chinese five spice, in with the veggies and bring to a boil, whisk in the cornstarch mixture until smooth. Reduce the heat to medium and add the beef. Simmer until the sauce has thickened and coats the beef, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Serve the beef over the fried rice. Top with orange segments, sesame seeds and fresh basil.

  1. I make your recipes at least once a week, each one has been amazing! But this one was so wonderful thank you for your inspirations!

  2. Hey Tieghan! I made this tonight and just like all of your recipes, this was fantastic!!! I served it in a pineapple which gave it an extra wow factor. Wonderful flavours…will definitely make this again! Your little personal touches (green onion, edamame, sesame seeds, nuts and especially the citrus and basil) really made this pop!

  3. We made this last night and the flavor was fabulous! Everything was terrific. The citrus & the 5 spice really makes it. Some slight adjustments next time. The broccoli was way too cooked for me. I will take out the vegetables and then add the marinade to reduce it. Also a bit too much oil for the fried rice for our taste. We use a very high powered butane burner with our wok so it really comes out like we are at a restaurant.

  4. Exactly! Since I do smoothies every morning nothing should go to waste! Funny that food has taken over my bathroom & bedroom closets! I might need a 12 step program for my obsession.

  5. Tieghan, this looks divine….I know you are a master of photography because everything looks like a food stylist came in….hmmm, maybe that happened, but nonetheless, still beautiful.Pineapples were on sale this week in Texas & since I live off smoothies in the morning, it was a no brainer for me to buy 6 because I cut them up & freeze them on a sheet tray! Did you know the healthiest part of a pineapple is the core??? I never knew this but my neighbor informed me of this & is a pineapple-aholic & I trust his wisdom….any how……,
    Just an FYI….my, the things you learn on the Internet, lol. I am cooking my jasmine rice as we speak because left over rice separates easier & being a pantry person, I had everything on hand… never know when you’re going to need something because I get so inspired by so many recipes.. I’m a hopeless stocker upper! I’m making this tomorrow so you can bet I will be checking in with my review….if it tastes half as good as it looks, it will definitely be a winner. Can’t wait for din din tomorrow!!!

    1. SO excited that I always eat the core! I mean, why let it go to waste?!?!

      And I always, ALWAYS stock up. You just never want to run out of anything! 🙂 TAHNK YOU!

  6. Made this last night! A lot of ingredience but had all of it already in cupboard. Was very tasty and a nice change from the boring traditional stir frys

  7. This looks so beautiful, I wish I had an orange tree I could go snip some leaves off. Didn’t party for mardi gras but might have to make this anyway!

  8. Funny post, but a seriously delicious recipe. I love teriyaki. It was one of the first dishes I tried to make in junior high. I love the orange with this recipe.
