How To Make Flank Steak Stir Fry with Asparagus
Whip up this savory and juicy flank steak stir fry tossed together with flank steak, asparagus, and red bell pepper in a tasty soy-garlic-ginger sauce!
Fill a medium-sized saucepan halfway with water and bring to a boil.
Blanch the cut asparagus for 2 minutes.
Drain, rinse with cold water to stop the cooking and set aside.
Stir Fry Sauce:
In a small dish, stir together the stir fry sauce ingredients—soy sauce, chopped ginger, minced garlic, chopped green onion, chili oil—and set aside.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a wok (or a thick-bottomed pot that can handle high heat) on high heat until shimmery.
Add the asparagus and fry, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes or until lightly browned.
Remove the asparagus from the pan and set aside.
Heat another 1 tablespoon of oil in the pan on high heat until shimmery.
Stir fry the beef strips in batches, for 2 to 3 minutes per batch, until they are browned but still a little pink inside.
Return the first batches of beef strips to the pan along with the bell pepper strips.
Stir and toss over high heat for 1 to 2 minutes until the bell pepper strips are just beginning to wilt.
Quickly stir the cornstarch liquid and add it to the pan along with the stir fry sauce.
Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until sauce thickens.
Return the asparagus to the pan, toss to evenly coat, and serve with steamed white rice.
- To slice the steak, slice along the grain and then cut into thin strips (across the grain), 2-inches long and ¼-inch wide (put the steak in the freezer for 15 minutes before slicing to make it easier to slice.
- For gluten-free version, use gluten-free soy sauce.
