Chinese Asparagus and Beef

Chinese Asparagus and Beef


2 lbs asparagus
1/2 lb beef steak sliced thin across the grain
2 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs dry sherry
1 quarter sized knob fresh ginger, grated
peanut or vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup chicken or beef stock
1 tbs fermented black beans (available at Asian markets)
pinch of sugar
  • Trim the tough ends from the asparagus, then cut on the diagonal into 1 inch pieces.
  • Marinate the beef steak in the soy sauce, sherry and ginger for about 30 minutes.
  • Place 1 tbs of oil in a hot wok or frying pan and add the drained meat. Stir fry for about 1 minute, then remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Place a bit more oil in the wok and add the garlic and stir fry for about 30 seconds, then add the asparagus and stir fry for 3-4 minutes until almost done. They should still be crunchy.
  • Return the beef back to the pan, then combine the sauce ingredients and add to the pan and stir until the sauce is well blended.
  • Serve with white rice.
