Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 Pound(s) Asparagus, stiff ends
1/4 Pound(s) Brown button mushrooms, or
Mixed mushrooms), Mixed mushrooms
2 Garlic cloves
1 Tablespoon(s) Fermented black soybeans
1 1/2 Tablespoon(s) Rice vinegar
1 Tablespoon(s) Tamari, or soy sauce
1 Teaspoon(s) Potato starch, or
Cornstarch), Cornstarch
1 Teaspoon(s) Brown sugar
1 Tablespoon(s) Sake or other rice wine
Cut asparagus on the diagonal into 1-2 inch pieces. Blanch for 5
minutes in boiling water. Drain and set aside. Wash and slice
mushrooms. Set aside. Mince the garlic. Rinse the black beans well.
Mix garlic and beans together. Set aside. Mix together the rice
vinegar, tamari, starch, sugar, and sake. Set aside. Fill a glass
with water and set handy next to the stove. Put a skillet over high
heat. When the pan is hot, dump the garlic mixture into the pan. Stir
fry for one minute, adding water as the mixture begins to stick -- add
just a little at time. Add the asparagus and stir fry for 10 minutes
(or until asparagus is just shy of being crisp-done), again adding
water just as needed. Add mushrooms and stir fry for 2-5 more
minutes. Add the vinegar mixture (giving it a last stir to make sure
starch is well mixed), stir until evenly coated and sauce thickens.
Serve immediately. Comments Fermented black soybeans are available in
Asian markets. Usually labled "salted black beans". I find them in
the preserved food section in plastic bags. Posted by Michelle Dick
