Beef Stir-Fry with Green Beans
- 1 pound boneless beef top sirloin or top round steak, cut 3/4 inch thick or flank steak
- 1/2 cup prepared Asian-sesame dressing
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 2-1/2 cups green beans or asparagus pieces (2-inch length)
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
- hot cooked rice (optional)
- Cut beef steak lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 1/8 to 1/4-inch thick strips. Combine 1/4 cup dressing and garlic in medium bowl. Add beef; toss to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes to 2 hours.
- Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add green beans and remaining 1/4 cup dressing; stir-fry 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove from skillet; season with salt, as desired. Set aside.
- Remove beef from marinade; discard marinade. Add 1/2 of beef to same skillet; stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes or until outside surface of beef is no longer pink. (Do not overcook.) Remove from skillet. Repeat with remaining beef.
