Lightly coat an unheated wok or large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat over medium-high heat. Add asparagus, mushrooms, broccoli, and green onions to hot wok or skillet. Cook and stir for 3 to 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove vegetables from wok or skillet.

Carefully add oil to the hot wok or skillet. Add meat. Stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes or until meat is slightly pink in center. Push meat from center of wok or skillet. Stir sauce; add to the center of wok or skillet. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
