  • 1/4  cup 
    orange juice, divided
  • 1   tablespoon 
    sugar
  • 1   tablespoon 
    minced fresh ginger
  • 2   cloves 
    garlic, minced
  •  
    Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 1/2  pounds 
    boneless beef chuck, trimmed of fat and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 1/2  cups 
    frozen broccoli flowerets (10 ounces)
  • 1   tablespoon 
    cornstarch
  • 1   tablespoon 
    orange marmalade
  •  
    Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2  cup 
    dry roasted cashews

    Hot cooked rice or Asian noodles
Directions
1.
In a small bowl stir together the soy sauce, 3 tablespoons orange juice, sugar, ginger, and garlic. Coat the inside of a 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Add the beef and the soy sauce mixture; stir to combine. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 hours.
2.
Just before beef is done, place broccoli in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Cover bowl with waxed paper. Cook on 100% power (high) for 4 minutes; drain off any liquid. Using a slotted spoon, transfer beef to a large bowl. Use the spoon or 2 forks to break up the beef into smaller pieces. Add the broccoli to the bowl. Cover to keep warm and set aside.
3.
Place a small fine mesh sieve over a small saucepan. Pour the juices from the slow cooker into the pan. In a small bowl stir together the cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water. Add to saucepan. Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Stir in orange marmalade, remaining 1 tablespoon orange juice, and pepper to taste.
4.
Add about half of the sauce and cashews to the beef and broccoli mixture; toss to coat. Serve over hot cooked rice or noodles; pass remaining sauce.
