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.

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.
