Colorful asparagus spears pair perfectly with tender beef in this quick fix from Dana Spencer. The Forest Ranch, California cook adds a sprinkling of sesame seeds for Asian flare.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2 tablespoons chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons dry red wine or additional chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1/2 pound beef flank steak, cut into strips
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sesame oil, divided
  • 6 fresh asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup hot cooked rice
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, water, broth, wine or additional broth and teriyaki sauce until smooth; set aside.
  2. In a small skillet, stir-fry beef in 1 teaspoon oil for 3-4 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm.
