"Very good stir-fry. A little on the sweet side. Cook in a large wok on medium-high heat. Marinating overnight is good, but not necessary."

Directions

  • Ready In

  1. Whisk soy sauce, sugar, rice wine vinegar, garlic, and 1 tablespoon sesame seeds in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add beef, coat with marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal bag. Marinate beef in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. Heat peanut oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir beef and marinade until beef is well-browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in asparagus, mushrooms, onion, bell pepper, and green onions; cook and stir until vegetables begin to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add cashews and 1 tablespoon sesame seeds; continue cooking until vegetables are tender, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  3. Mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl; stir into beef stir fry until sauce is thickened, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sesame seeds.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you don't plan on consuming the entire batch the first meal, I suggest you omit the cashews altogether, or add them to each plate when served. They will turn soggy and not be very appealing the second day.

This wasn't bad, we just weren't fans of the sauce. Too sweet and too bland somehow. Thanks.

I only used the recipe for the sauce. I have a go-to veggie list my family tolerates. At any rate, I added a teaspoon of sesame oil and a teaspoon of hot sauce to balance flavors and swapped app...
