2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon red curry paste
1 1/2 pounds boneless top sirloin steak, trimmed
1 cup uncooked jasmine rice
2 teaspoons sesame oil, divided
1/2 pound asparagus spears, diagonally cut into 1-inch pieces (about 2 cups)

. Heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add asparagus, snow peas, and carrot; sauté 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in broth and next 5 ingredients; cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Return steak to pan; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve over hot cooked rice.
