Whether you’re a bachelor living in your own pad, a busy mom who just got off from work, or you simply want to make your own dinner because you’re avoiding the calorie-packed fast food, one-pan dinners are real life savers! They are not just easy to make because most of them are of a basic formula (your choice of protein + a combo of veggies + the option of carbs if you’re not on a diet), but more importantly, they just save you a lot of time because you don’t need to use up all your kitchen tools and wash them all right after.


What You’ll Need:

The key to making successful one-pan dinners is the right tool. You need to find a high-quality pan that can withstand prolonged/maximum heat, is non-stick, and one that will bring out the flavors of your food even in a short amount of time.

The key to making successful one-pan dinners is the right tool. You need to find a high-quality pan that can withstand prolonged/maximum heat, is non-stick, and one that will bring out the flavors of your food even in a short amount of time.

That being said, what you need is the California Home Goods Non-stick CeramiTech Fry Pan, plus these ingredients:

  • 1lb Top Sirloin Steak (room temp, sliced thinly)

  • 1 medium onion, sliced

  • ¾ lb asparagus, trimmed of rough ends

  • ½ lb fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced

  • 1 yellow/red bell pepper, sliced

  • 1 tsp grated ginger

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • Olive Oil

  • Salt & Pepper

  • Roasted Sesame Seeds


What You’ll Do:

  1. For the Secret 3-Ingredient Sauce: Why is it a secret? Because it’s itotally easy! Just mix 3 tbsps of any original BBQ sauce, 3 tbsps classic maple syrup, and 2 tbsps of low-sodium Asian soy sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.

  2. Heat the fry pan  over high heat and add 1 Tbsp oil. When oil is hot, add beef and saute undisturbed for 2-3 mins. Stir and saute another 2 min or until nearly cooked through. Season lightly with salt and pepper, add ginger and garlic and saute for another 30 sec-1 min.

  3. Take the cooked beef and put aside to a plate.  Put a tablespoon of oil on to the pan and saute the mushrooms and asparagus. Season lightly with S&P.

  4. Put the mushrooms and asparagus beside the cooked sirloin. Saute your onions and bell peppers until caramelized and soft. Then drizzle some of the secret sauce over.

  5. Lower the heat of the pan. Add the garlic, ginger, then the cooked beef into the pan. Put more of the secret sauce to the beef and veggies until they’re all coated well and the sauce isn’t as liquid anymore.

  6. Plate beside the cooked mushrooms and asparagus. Drizzle more of the secret sauce to the whole plate and top with sesame seeds. Enjoy as is or eat with steamed white rice.


Additional Notes:   If you’re not cutting down on your sugar and you like the dish to be a bit more on the sweet side, you may also use a sweet BBQ sauce instead of the original BBQ. And if top sirloin isn’t available, you may also use Tenderloin or Pork Strip Loin
