Chef Deb’s comments:

“I use fresh asparagus and don’t use the peppers.  (Husband) John needs a more tender cut of meat so I pre-slice it and marinate it in a plastic freezer bag.  I also use a mix of greens.  I think that sunflower seeds would be good.  Be sure and boil the marinade.  I have used catsup and Heinz 57 instead of the A-1 both have been good.  To cut the sodium, maybe a low salt catsup would work. I like the asparagus hot so I don’t cool mine.  I have also served this over hot cooked fresh spinach instead of the field greens.”
