Hoisin Beef Stir Fry with Asparagus and Red and Orange Bell Peppers

Hoisin Beef Stir Fry Recipe

Just like going out to eat where you ask them to leave the rice to the side, this time, you’ll just serve this in a bowl and enjoy it without any additional carbs.

Makes 6 servings ready to serve in less than 10 minutes
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce, divided
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch, divided
  • 1 pound boneless beef steak, cut into 1/2 inch strips
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil, divided
  • 1 red or orange bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 pound asparagus, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, white or black

Combine half soy sauce and cornstarch in a bowl, whisk until smooth. Add beef, rubbing mixture into all surfaces.

Combine remaining soy, cornstarch, broth and hoisin, rice vinegar, dark oil, and red pepper. Heat 2 teaspoons sesame oil in a large skillet then sauté beef, stirring about 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a warm bowl. Add remaining oil to skillet and stir-fry the bell pepper, asparagus, and green onion until crisp-tender. Add beef and broth mixture and cook until hot through, about 30 seconds. Serve at once sprinkled with sesame seeds.
