Beef Asparagus Lo Mein

Here is a yummy recipe for Beef Asparagus Lo Mein. I whipped this up tonight and it's so YUMMY!!!

1 Beef top sirloin steak (1 pound). thinly sliced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 tsp minced garlic
2 1/4 cups water, divided into 1/4c and 2c
2 packages beef ramen noodles
2/3 cup hoisin sauce (This has a bit of a kick to it, so if you or your kids don't like a kick, substitute a bit of soy sauce instead of some of this sauce.)

In a large skillet or wok, stir fry beef in oil for 5 minutes or until no longer pink.
Add the asparagus and garlic; stir fry for 2 minutes or until asparagus is crisp tender.

In a bowl, combine 1/4 cup water and 1/2 tsp seasoning from one ramen noodle seasoning packer, stir until dissolved. Add hoisin sauce; stir into the beef mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.

In a large pot, bring remaining water to a boil; add ramen noodles and contents of second seasoning packet. Cook for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat; cover and let stand until noodles are tender (about 2-3 more minutes). Serve with beef mixture.
