Asparagus Beef Stir-Fry Recipe

I love Filet Mignon, but not its price! While grocery shopping, I picked up a more affordable beef tenderloin tail. I brought it home and came up with this recipe. Now I cook it once a week, plus my husband loves taking the leftovers to work. —Linda Flynn Ellicott City, Maryland

My husband and I love this. Hubby does most of the cooking since he is retired and I still work, and he makes this a couple of times a month. Very tasty!

MY REVIEW

This was pretty good. Hubby found it a little bland, though we didn't have any lemon juice so that might make the difference. Will make again.
