There was a special on Asparagus this week so I went looking for something different, I found this ï�Š! We all really enjoyed it but it does have two of our favorite ingredients, Beef and asparagus. Thanks for posting.
We just had this with the first local asparagus and it was awesome! I used a marinated cross rib steak that I had in the freezer, and did not have water chestnuts so I pulled a couple of radishes out of the garden and used them as a sub, since they have about the same consistency- very clever I thought ;-). Very easy to cut in half for the two os us. Thanks Jess.
