Adapted from Cooking Light, December 2009. You can leave out the MSG if you like (it wasn't in the original version), but you will likely need to increase the salt to compensate.

Delicious - I used left over steak from our steak dinner the night before and broccoli instead of asparagus. I steamed the broccoli 2 min before adding them to the stirfry, which made them done, but still nice and crunchy. Made for ZWT6
