cost per recipe: $10.15

  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice
  • 1 pound boneless beef sirloin steak, about 3/4-inch thick, cut into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium red or yellow bell pepper, cut into 2-inch strips (about 1 cup)
  • 1  large onion, cut in half and sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Beef Gravy
  • 1/2 cup Pace® Picante Sauce
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce or reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest


  • Tips

    • Easy Substitution: Green pepper can be substituted for the red or yellow pepper.
    • Ingredient Note: To make slicing easier, freeze the beef for 1 hour before slicing.
  • Step 1

    Cook the rice according to the package directions.  While the rice is cooking, season the beef as desired.  Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until well browned, stirring occasionally.  Remove the beef from the skillet.  Pour off any fat.

  • Step 2

    Heat the remaining oil in the skillet.  Add the pepper and onion and cook until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 3

    Stir in the gravy, picante sauce, orange juice, soy sauce and orange zest and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Return the beef to the skillet.  Cook until the mixture is hot, stirring occasionally.  Season to taste.  Serve the beef mixture over the rice.

    Just now made this recipe. Something is very wrong and/or missing in this recipe. Can't really nail it down, but I think the basic problem may be the gravy. Edible, but very much underwhelmed. Disappointing.

    This recipe is easy to make .My family loved it so much, that they asked me to make it again. The picante sauce adds to the good flavor as does the orange juice and orange zest.
