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

  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.

Fantastic! My husband devoured this! The only thing I changed was that I added a few spashes of spicy szechuan sauce since I saw that it was a bit sweet.. And I just really like the mixture of sweet and spicy. Overall, I will be making this again.

This is really good. I'm a rather difficult person to "wow" so I'm giving this recipe 4 stars. As the recipe is written it's a little too sweet for my tastes, but overall I'd say it's definitely a nice, easy dinner and very tasty.

Delicious, made as written except I did not have rice wine vinegar, so I used 25% water and 75% white wine vinegar. My husband and son enjoyed this recipe and I have the go ahead to make again. My only complaint would be the beef was over cooked, so next time I will not cook the beef as long before I add the veggies. Thank you for submitting this recipe.
