  • Asparagus- 12 oz
  • Garlic- 4 cloves
  • Scallions- 4
  • Ginger- 2 thumbs
  • Basmati Rice- 1 1/2 cups
  • Soy Sauce- 2 tbsp
  • Hoisin Sauce- 4 tbsp
  • Sirloin Steak Tips- 24 oz
  • White Sesame Seeds- 2 tbsp



1  PREP.    Wash and dry all produce. Bring 1½ cups water and a pinch of salt to a boil in a small pot. Trim and discard bottom inch from asparagus, then cut stalks into 2-inch pieces. Mince or grate garlic. Trim and thinly slice scallions. Peel and mince ginger.


COOK RICE.     Once water is boiling, add rice to pot, cover, and reduce to a simmer. Cook until tender, 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and keep covered.


3 MAKE SAUCE.       Meanwhile, whisk together garlic, ginger, soy sauce, 1 TBSP water, and 2 TBSP hoisin sauce in a small bowl.


4  SEAR STEAK.       Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Pat steak tips dry with a paper towel, then season with salt and pepper. Add to pan and toss until nearly cooked to desired doneness, 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.


5  MAKE STIR-FRY.     Add asparagus and scallions to same pan over medium heat. (TIP: If veggies seem dry, add a drizzle of oil.) Cook until tender but still crunchy, 3-4 minutes, tossing occasionally. Add steak tips and sauce to pan and cook until sauce is thickened and meat reaches desired doneness, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.


6  FINISH AND PLATE.     Fluff rice with a fork. Divide between plates, then top with stir-fry and garnish with sesame seeds.
