Beef, snap pea, and asparagus stir-fry

H and I aren’t the biggest stir-fry fans. We find it to be too heavy, too salty, etc..but when I came across this recipe, I decided to give it one more try. We loved this recipe!! I did use low-sodium products, and fresh ingredients! This was a great weeknight meal that was on the table in about 20 mins and SCORE it is a clean eating meal too. This recipe was found in the latest issue of the Everyday Food Magazine!


1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp rice vinegar
1 tsp sugar
3/4 lb boneless NY strip steak thinly sliced
coarse salt
1 tbsp veg oil
1 bunch of asparagus trimmed, cut into 2 inch lengths
1 garlic clove minced
1 tbsp minced fresh ginger
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp torn fresh basil
cooked rice-I used a cup brown rice for both H and I

In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, vinegar, and sugar. Season steak with salt. In a large skillet or wok, heat oil over high heat. Cook steak, undisturbed, until brown on one side. 2 minutes flip and cook until cooked through. 30 seconds. Transfer to a bowl.
Add asparagus, snap peas, garlic, and ginger to skillet. Cook, stirring constantly until vegs are crisp-tender about 4 minutes. Add soy mixture and cook until fragrant about 10 seconds. Remove skillet from heat and stir in lemon juice and basil. Toss steak with vegs, serve with rice.

    That looks very tasty. I bet it would be good with chicken or shrimp as well.
