Steak & Asparagus Stir Fry


  • 1 lb. lean sirloin, cut into thin strips ½ inch wide and 2 inches long*
  • 4 c. asparagus, stems removed, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • ¾ c. beef broth
  • ½ c. green onion, coarsely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 2 T. fresh ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • ½ med. red onion, sliced
  • 2 T. soy sauce


  1. Steam the asparagus until bright green but still firm, about 2 minutes.
  2. Drain; rinse with cold water to stop cooking; drain again.
  3. Combine ¼ cup beef broth, green onion, garlic, and ginger in a food processor or blender. Pulse until the mixture is minced and set aside.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and mist lightly with olive oil pan spray.
  5. Add the steak strips, red onion, and soy sauce and sauté for 4 minutes, or until beef is nearly cooked.
  6. Add the green onion mixture and remaining ½ cup of broth, bring to a boil.
  7. Add asparagus to the skillet and stir until the asparagus is cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  8. Divide among four dinner plates, serve immediately.

*Note: It is easier to slice beef thinly if you place it in the freezer for about 30 minutes first. I also use kitchen shears to cut the beef.
