total time


12 ounce Beef Sirloin Tips

¾ cup Basmati Rice

6 ounce Asparagus

2 clove Garlic

1 thumb Ginger

1 jar Hoisin Sauce Jar

1 tablespoon Sesame Seeds

2 unit Scallions

½ ounce Soy Sauce

1 teaspoon Vegetable Oil

unit Salt

unit Pepper


Wash and dry all produce. Bring 1½ cups water and a pinch of salt to a boil in a small pot. Trim and discard bottom inch from asparagus, then cut stalks into 2-inch pieces. Mince or grate garlic. Trim and thinly slice scallions. Peel and mince ginger.

Once water is boiling, add rice to pot, cover, and reduce to a simmer. Cook until tender, 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and keep covered.

Meanwhile, whisk together garlic, ginger, soy sauce, 1 TBSP water, and 2 TBSP hoisin sauce (we sent more) in a small bowl.

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Pat steak tips dry with a paper towel, then season with salt and pepper. Add to pan and toss until nearly cooked to desired doneness, 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. .

Add asparagus and scallions to same pan over medium heat. (TIP: If veggies seem dry, add a drizzle of oil.) Cook until tender but still crunchy, 3-4 minutes, tossing occasionally. Add steak tips and sauce to pan and cook until sauce is thickened and meat reaches desired doneness, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Fluff rice with a fork. Divide between plates, then top with stir-fry and garnish with sesame seeds.
