Asparagus Beef Lo Mein Recipe

Asparagus Beef Lo Mein Recipe

This flavorful stir-fry is easy and relatively inexpensive. It's served over ramen noodles, which is a nice change from rice we usually have. To simplify preparation, I use store-bought garlic infused olive oil instead of minced garlic and olive oil.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 beef top sirloin steak (1 pound), thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2-1/4 cups water, divided
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) beef ramen noodles
  • 2/3 cup hoisin sauce

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet or wok, stir-fry beef in oil for 5 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Add the asparagus and garlic; stir-fry for 2 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup water and 1/2 teaspoon seasoning from one ramen noodle seasoning packet; stir until dissolved. Add hoisin sauce; stir into the beef mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. (Discard remaining seasoning from opened packet.)
  • 3. In a large saucepan, bring remaining water to a boil; add ramen noodles and contents of remaining seasoning packet. Cook for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat; cover and let stand until noodles are tender. Serve with beef mixture. Yield: 4 servings.
