I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of

Spicy Beef and Asparagus Stir Fry

Serves 4 - A great asparagus deal, especially when it’s in season.


  • one steak, about a pound (I like a New York) with the fat trimmed and sliced very thin
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, the top half of each sliced into 2 inch lengths
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and cut into 1 1/2 - 2 inch chunks
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili paste (the Asian kind in a jar)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • peanut oil


  1. In a small bowl combine the oyster sauce, chili paste, soy sauce and sesame oil and stir well to make the sauce
  2. Heat a wok until it is really hot (smoking) and add a tablespoon of peanut oil
  3. Stir fry the asparagus and bell peppers for 3 or 4 minutes until ’crisp tender’ and remove from pan
  4. Add a teaspoon of peanut oil, wait for the smoke and then put in the sliced steak
  5. Stir fry until the meat is no longer red and add back the vegetables
  6. Add the sauce to all, stir well and you’re all done
