How to Make Shiitake Beef And Rice With Asparagus

This recipe is fairly simple and creates a delicious meal for families. Start by rehydrating the mushrooms. I rinse the dried mushrooms and add to a ball jar with cold water. Then place it in the fridge for at least an hour to really get them softened up and ready to use. Next, make white rice in a small saucepan. In a medium to large skillet, melt butter and add in the onion. 


Once the onions have cooked for a couple minutes add in the shiitake mushrooms and let those simmer for a few minutes as well.

Next, add in the thinly sliced shaved beef steak. I found this at Trader Joe’s if you haven’t seen it in the grocery store. Add in the sliced asparagus at the same time.

Make sure to give it a good stir and cover to cook longer. As the beef is cooking, make the sauce. Combine the soy sauce, beef broth and brown sugar then pour it on top of the beef mixture.
