Essanaye's Sesame Beef Stir Fry

Recipe by  

"Very good stir-fry. A little on the sweet side. Cook in a large wok on medium-high heat. Marinating overnight is good, but not necessary."

Directions

  1. Whisk soy sauce, sugar, rice wine vinegar, garlic, and 1 tablespoon sesame seeds in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add beef, coat with marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal bag. Marinate beef in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. Heat peanut oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir beef and marinade until beef is well-browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in asparagus, mushrooms, onion, bell pepper, and green onions; cook and stir until vegetables begin to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add cashews and 1 tablespoon sesame seeds; continue cooking until vegetables are tender, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  3. Mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl; stir into beef stir fry until sauce is thickened, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sesame seeds.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you don't plan on consuming the entire batch the first meal, I suggest you omit the cashews altogether, or add them to each plate when served. They will turn soggy and not be very appealing the second day.

Fantastic! My husband devoured this! The only thing I changed was that I added a few spashes of spicy szechuan sauce since I saw that it was a bit sweet.. And I just really like the mixture of sweet and spicy. Overall, I will be making this again.

This is really good. I'm a rather difficult person to "wow" so I'm giving this recipe 4 stars. As the recipe is written it's a little too sweet for my tastes, but overall I'd say it's definitely a nice, easy dinner and very tasty.

Delicious, made as written except I did not have rice wine vinegar, so I used 25% water and 75% white wine vinegar. My husband and son enjoyed this recipe and I have the go ahead to make again. My only complaint would be the beef was over cooked, so next time I will not cook the beef as long before I add the veggies. Thank you for submitting this recipe.
