Asparagus Beef Stir Fry

Oh my little blog babies…I am so sorry. I have been a neglectful blog Mama and have completely deserted you.

I have had a few wonderful and loyal readers approach me and ask what the hell happened, where did I go. I am embarrassed to say that life got in the way.  I went on vacation in May and lost the ooomph to cook and blog. Since the beginning of summer my dear son has decided to do a week at home and a week at his Dads and honestly when its just me I tend to eat a lot of toast. I am not as motivated to cook for just myself. I have to get out of that.

 

So here is a super duper easy but extra yummy recipe from Kraft. One of the things I like about most Kraft recipes is there are minimal ingredients. You will never see a Kraft recipe with 19 ingredients or asking for strange things that you can’t find at your local grocery store like dried shittake mushrooms. Simple=good (most of the time).

This one is really tasty.

What you will need:

stir fry, beef, asparagus, peppers, Kraft

1/3 cup Kraft Catalina Dressing
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 lb. beef sirloin steak, cut into thin strips (I used 2 decent sized steaks)
1 lb. fresh asparagus spears, cut diagonally into 2-inch lengths
1 red pepper, cut into strips
3 green onions, thinly sliced
2-2/3 cups hot cooked long-grain white rice
peppers, green onion, asparagus
beef
Heat the salad dressing and soy sauce on med-high heat in a large skillet or wok.
sauce
Add the beef and stir fry for 3 minutes.
beef, sauce
Add the peppers and asparagus. Stir fry another 5 minutes or until beef is done.
asparagus, peppers
Add the green onions (and I added a dash of chili flakes to incorporate a little heat with the sweet).
asparagus, peppers, sauce, beef, green onion, chili flakes
Serve on hot rice.
Asparagus Beef Stir Fry
SO simple. SO quick.
There is no question I will be making this again. It reminds me a little of a frozen dinner I used to buy a lot. It may or may not have been a version of a Michelena dinner but it has not been for sale around here for a few years and I really REALLY liked it. Its not so pretty once stirred up but I really enjoyed it.
I hope you do too.
Enjoy!
love, peace and chicken grease,

Edit: I now make this ALL the time but add a sprinkle of crushed red chili flakes to spice it up a little. It is one of my most favorite things to take to work for lunch/supper.
