Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 Pound(s) Flank steak
1 Teaspoon(s) Cornstarch
Soy sauce
2 Pound(s) Fresh asparagus with tight
2 Onions
2 Cloves garlic
Salad oil
3 Tablespoon(s) Canned bean sauce
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Sugar
Cut steak lengthwise in 2-1/2-inch strips, trimming off fat as you go.
Then cut across the grain, in 1/8-inch thick strips. Put meat in bowl
and att 1 teaspoon salt, cornstarch, and 2 teaspoons soy sauce. Wash
asparagus carefully, break off tough ends, and cut diagonally into
pieces about 1/4-inch thick. (If you cat on a SHARP DIAGONAL, the
pieces will be abut 1-1/2 to 2" long.) Cut onions in half lengthwise,
lay cut side down, and slice crosswise into 1/4" slices. Smash garlic
cloves with flat side of knife or cleaver and remove sking. Heat a
wide frying pan or wok over highest heat, add 1/4 cup oil, it should
bubble slightly from the heat. Add garlic and cook just until pale
brown. Remove and discard. Add meat, stir frequently, and cook until
almost browned. Remove to a bowl. Add 3 tablespoons more oil. Add
onion. Cook a minute or two stirring constantly. Make a little hollow
on top of the onion; add bean sauce. Cook until onion starts to get
translucent. Add asparagus and sprinkle over 1 teaspoon salt, sugar
and 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Cover and cook, taking the top off
occasionally to stir well, just until asparagus is tender-crisp. Then,
put the meat on top. Cook, stirring,just long enough to get the meat
reheated. Seve at once. *TIPS: This is usually served over white rice.
I always add more grlic, usually with the onion, and leaving it in.
You can experiment with using flavored oil in part. Also, try a
different Asian sauce if you have it on hand. Sharron MM Format Norma
