We really liked this and it came together quickly. I doubled the sauce recipe b/c I had a bit more than a pound of sirloin AND we like extra sauce for rice. I didn't use the fish sauce (we don't really care for it) instead did 1 tablespoon oyster sauce and 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Nice meal w/ingrediants I ususally have on hand. Thanks!

What a great tasting, wicked simple one-dish meal! I made only one change and one addition. The change was that I used blade instead of sirloin steaks (cut out the center line of gristle and then cut the two halves of each steak into thin strips). Blade steaks are more affordable than sirloin and stand up really well to pan frying. And I also added two carrots, cut on the bias into slices about 1/4", with the asparagus. Thank you Hey Jude, this was a real week-day winner.

Tried this for tonight's dinner and it was a hit with family! My husband and son is into this low carb diet and they ate just this, my 13, 8, and 3yr old ate this with rice and they love it! I tweaked it a little bit, i added 1 clove fresh minced garlic and 1 onion. I doubled the recipe since I have 1.5 lbs of sirloin and added fresh mushroom in it too. I also used half and half of fish sauce and oyster sauce. It turned out like something you'll eat at a Chinese restaurant.

I decided to try this as a beef stir fry with a couple 16 oz. bags of frozen stir fry veggies that I had. I didn't have peanut oil or fresh ginger so, I used canola oil and ground ginger. I just mixed a teaspoon of ground ginger with the beef broth before adding it to the veggies. All in all this was really good and with a little tweaking I think it will be fantastic. Next time I think I'll add just a tad more ground ginger. It just needed a little more saltiness so I think a little more fish sauce or some soy sauce would take care of that. It was also a tad oily, so I'll cut the canola oil in half next time.

We have an overabundance of fresh asparagus this year, so I gave this recipe a try. We loved it! I substituted soy sauce for the fish sauce and had to thicken it with a little more cornstarch at the end. I served it with pearl barley instead of rice because of a diabetic in the family. Next time I make it I might toss in a little more fresh ginger. Thanks for posting this recipe!

This was very good ! I did not have any fish sauce so I just used soy sauce and that worked really well. I also doubled the sauce recipe so we would have a little extra to serve over our Rice. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Thanks jude for this recipe, i did some changes on it. I marinate the beef with salt, pepper, wostershire sauce, oyster sauce and minced fresh ginger just put right amount of these ingr. for like 4 hours or longer if u want.. then i followed the recipe.. I used red bell pepper and potatoes since i dont have asparagus. ff. the procedure to plus I added right amount of wostershire sauce, after 1 minute, I add some oyster sauce, and mixed knorr beef to 1 cup of water and put it in the wock. to make the sauce thicker put some water on a cup mixed with 1 tbsp of cornstarch then mixed it in the wock just right amount of it. the more u let it boil the more the taste of the ginger will have. put some sugar to make sure not a lot coz it will have a weird taste. if u put a lot just add some oystersauce... when the sauce is thick i then add the cooked beef and add on some sesame seeds and well done.

This was really good. My husband doesn't eat asparagus so we used red and green peppers.

Thanks for a delicious, week-night recipe! We used shaved beef instead of cutting up sirloin (it was on sale!) and it turned out really well. We meant to add mushrooms, but forgot, so will do that next time. Also, added some garlic powder, but next time will use fresh garlic. We also served it with brown rice.

This is quick, nutritious and yummy! I too used white onions only because I was out of green. But it was still wonderful. I used brown rice because out of the white rice again. I like this!
