Sesame Beef and Asparagus Salad Recipe

Especially during the summertime, this makes a nice light meal. When I prepare it for guests, I'll also serve rice and bread—it's quick and easy, but it always wins me many compliments! I'm a homemaker with two small children, and cooking's one of my favorite hobbies.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 pound beef top round steak
