Place steak strips in a mixing bowl and sprinkle with cornstarch; toss well to coat. Add soy sauce and season with salt and pepper; mix thoroughly. Let marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes.
Toast sesame seeds in a small pan over medium heat until lightly browned, shaking pan frequently to prevent burning, 3 to 4 minutes. Cool on a plate.
Remove peel and pith from orange. Cut between membranes and separate segments; halve segments.
Combine orange peel, orange juice, vinegar, sherry, chili paste, and oyster sauce in a bowl; mix well.
Heat peanut and sesame oils in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add beef; stir-fry until lightly browned but pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add ginger, garlic, and scallions, and stir-fry for 20 seconds. Add contents of bowl to pan; cook over high heat, stirring, until sauce boils and thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Stir in orange segments to heat through. You've found a 12-Day Holiday Give-O-Way icon!
