    Used brown rice instead of noodles. I did not have brown sugar so I used 1 Tbspn maple sugar. Plan on using some mushrooms next time. Loved the sauce.

    sauce was awesome! Easy and fun to make. Really salty. So would suggest rice noodles or pass on the ramen seasoning. We added mushroom which was perfect. Will prob try again with chicken.

    We enjoyed this sauce. It was great with the beef and asparagus. I will use rice next time because we didn't care much for the ramen noodles.

    Prep time is definitely longer than 10 min unless you are very skilled with a knife, but it is well worth the effort. Just enough kick from the red pepper flakes, and a really nice flavor. I've never added sesame seeds to a stir fry before, but they were an excellent finishing touch.

    This was great! Loved the flavor of the sauce and the steak was so tender. We did add cremini mushrooms with the asparagus. It was fantastic! My husband wants to try it next time with shrimp and have it over our Korean rice. That sounds good too! This dish is so versatile!

    This was really yummy! We used broccoli instead of asparagus and served over rice, so I omitted the first few steps cooking the noodles. Went together quickly once I did all the prep work and cooked in the same amount of time as my rice so under 30 minutes...gotta love that!

    This was excellent. I read all of the asparagus beef recipes and this one stood out even though it didn't have the highest rating. Hoisin sauce, red pepper flakes, sesame oil and lots of garlic always guarantee a great dish with lots of flavor. The family all said, "This one's a keeper!" I substituted fresh chow mein noodles for the ramen noodles (and seasoning packet) to cut the sodium.


Hi I am a married woman with one child, 3 dogs, and 1 cat. Cooking is my passion. I love to entertain and try out new recipes on my friends. I work as an engraver making trophies and awards, a very satisfying and creative job. I love to go home every night and cook something my family will enjoy. The only thing that will keep me out of the kitchen is if someone(you know who you are) does not clean up after themselves. My little dogs are a constant presence under foot waiting for the occasional tidbit to fall, not always accidentally! It is very hard to resist a tea cup, and long haired chihuahua and a morkie!
