Step 1Preheat oven to 185°F (85°C). Thinly slice reserved beef, then cut slices into 1/4-inch wide strips; set aside.
Step 2Using a vegetable peeler, slice the zucchini lengthwise to form long “ribbons.”
Step 3Working in 2 batches, heat 1 tsp (5 mL) canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the zucchini and cook 1 1/2–2 minutes or until just tender-crisp, using 2 utensils to stir as you would a stir-fry. Place immediately on a serving platter and place in low-heat oven to keep warm; do NOT cover. Repeat with 1 tsp (5 mL) canola oil and remaining zucchini. Add to the zucchini.
Step 4Heat remaining 2 tsp (10 mL) canola oil in the skillet; cook the mushrooms and peppers 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Add the beef. Cook 1–2 minutes or until heated. Spoon mixture over zucchini.
Step 5Remove skillet from heat, stir in the reserved sauce, orange zest, and orange juice, drizzle over all, and sprinkle with green onion.
