I have gotten some great suggestions for the site recently, and I would love to get more. Let me know what you would like to see, and we’ll see what we can do for you. You can use the suggestion box on the right, email us directly, or contact us on Facebook. Lately, I was asked to add more beef and protein dishes to the site, so I wanted to do a couple twists on old classics. Today we will make Steak-Wrapped Asparagus.
I really like marinating the steak before wrapping, but you can use the marinade just as a sauce. Marinating intensifies the flavor and also tenderizes the meat. Also, if you prefer, you can bake these in a 500 degree oven for about 7 minutes, but the steak doesn’t get those nice grill marks.
This dish serves 4-6 people as an appetizer.
2 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp Hoisin sauce
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
½ tsp chili flakes
½ lb flank steak, cut into thin strips
1 lb asparagus
1) In a medium bowl, mix the ingredients from the garlic through the chili flakes.
2) Add the steak and marinate, covered, for at least 2 hours or overnight.
3) Heat the grill.
4) Wrap each piece of asparagus with a single piece of steak.
5) Grill the pieces until the steak is well-marked and the asparagus begins to wilt, turning once.
6) Serve and enjoy!
