Venison and Asparagus Stir Fry

Venison and Asparagus Stir FryThis Venison and Asparagus Stir Fry is my all time favorite meal. I remember my dad making it for us as far back as I can remember. That may be why it’s one of my favs…brings back memories and you can’t beat the comfort of home cooking.

I actually don’t know if I’ve ever had this recipe with beef. I always use venison chops or steaks instead. Yet…you could easily sub out the venison for steak if you’d prefer 🙂

Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables so this is a winning combination for me. I typically serve it over brown rice. Today I had some leftover cauliflower rice so I served it over a mixture of rice and cauliflower rice. Delicious! My kids would prefer white rice but now that I finished the MASSIVE bag of white rice I had bought pre-COVID when people were stockpiling everything, we’re back to brown or cauliflower rice instead.

Substitutions/Additions made by Cooking After Class for Venison and Asparagus Stir Fry:

  • The original recipe my dad used called for less sherry and chicken broth but I have adjusted the recipe to double the sauce. I like it with a little extra sauce to drizzle over the top of the dish.

Tips from Cooking After Class for making Venison and Asparagus Stir Fry:

  • Don’t overcook the meat or asparagus. You’ll have tough meat and mushy veggies. Yuck!
