If the thought of one more bite of summer squash (namely zucchini) sends you over the moon, then this asparagus and beef appetizer is for you.
Don’t get me wrong, I love zucchini. But when it comes to favorite veggies, asparagus is at the top of my list.
When I saw bundles of my go-to vegetable on sale at the grocery store, I couldn’t resist dropping a few into my cart. Packages of thinly sliced beef were affordable too, so they landed next to the asparagus.
I had no idea what I was going to do with my thrifty purchases, but then inspiration came as I was carting my loot home.
Why not turn my asparagus and beef into an easy appetizer?
All I’d have to do is slice my beef into strips, and wrap it around the asparagus!
A quick zap in the microwave produced crisp tender asparagus that cooked at the same rate as the beef I’d wrapped around it and secured with toothpicks.
All I needed was a dipping sauce.
A pantry check produced a jar of spicy horseradish – perfect for this horseradish lover. Flavor without fuss, and now my beefy asparagus appetizer was ready for the table in time to relax with a well-deserved glass of wine.
Have a lovely Labor Day weekend everyone!
