I decided that we should test our canned meats to see if we want to go forward using the same cuts. So far we have tested the canned ground, canned chicken breast and the canned beef. I totally spaced it and forgot to take a pic of the first 2 so I will have to redo them.
Asparagus Beef Ingredients:
1 pint canned beef (biggest chunk possible), reserve liquid in separate bowl
1 bunch asparagus (flash blanched)
1/2 white onion
1/2 green bellpepper
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tbsp oyster or hoisin sauce (you can also use plum sauce)
This fed 4 very easily.
Crack open the canned beef and pour out liquid into a separate bowl mix in cornstarch.
Chop asparagus and blanch in boiling water.
Drain and set aside.
Chop onion and Bellpepper
On High heat saute onions and bellpepper until soft. Add Beef and stir constantly until it is warmed throughout. Do NOT overcook or press try to maintain the appearance of the beef. Add soy sauce and oyster sauce then Mix thoroughly. Once everything looks coated make a well. Throw in beef broth in the center and cook until it is clear like gravy. Add asparagus and toss 4 or 5 times.
Serve over rice or rice noodles.
I would also like to add that I find using the canned beef chunks much easier than using fresh beef because it has a softer quality and a quicker cook time since you don't have to cook that long to get the soft bite. Stir fry is not that hard - it's the timing of the ingredients to keep that balance of soft and crunchy, salty versus sweet and the blended scent of it. Once you get the hang of it - this dish can be done in 10 minutes including prep time. By the way I also added baby spinach to mine for extra slide and vitamins.
Happy Prepping and even HAPPIER eating everyone!
