This is a great recipe if you enjoy stir fry. We love asparagus so it makes it even that much better!
Beef Asparagus Stir-Fry
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce, divided
2 tablespoons dry red wine or beef broth, divided
1/2 pound beef top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup water
4 teaspoons canola oil, divided
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
2 celery ribs, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Hot cooked rice, optional
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 1 tablespoon wine or broth; add beef. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 30 minutes. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, water and remaining soy sauce and wine or broth until smooth; set aside.
In a large nonstick skillet or wok, stir-fry beef in 2 teaspoons oil for 3-4 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm. Stir-fry onion in remaining oil for 1 minute. Add asparagus; stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add celery, garlic and red pepper flakes; stir-fry 4-6 minutes longer or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
Stir cornstarch mixture and add to the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add beef; heat through. Serve with rice if desired. Yield: 3 servings.
