Stir Fry Beef and Asparagus in Oyster Sauce

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 4


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound flank steak or strip steak cut into thin slices, about 1/8" thick


  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons rice wine or sherry
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Stir-Fry Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons ginger minced
  • 2 tablespoons scallions chopped, green parts reserved for garnish
  • 1 bunch asparagus tough bottoms broken off, cut into 1 1/2" pieces

Stir-Fry Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water


  • green parts of scallion from above
  • toasted sesame seeds optional


  1. Mix together Marinade ingredients in a bowl and add steak slices. Mix Stir-Fry Sauce ingredients together in a small bowl and have Stir-Fry Ingredients ready on a plate or cutting board.
  2. Heat oil in a wok or large skillet. Remove a spoonful of oil and add to marinated beef; toss to loosen up meat. Add beef to wok and spread in a single layer; let brown then flip to brown other side (do not overcook - you want it to be rare inside at this point). Remove beef from wok using a slotted spoon.
  3. Stir-fry ginger, white parts of scallion and asparagus in remaining oil until asparagus is crisp tender, about 2-3 minutes. Add Stir-Fry Sauce and beef; toss everything together and stir-fry another minute or two. Remove to serving bowl and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, if desired.
