    • 1 lb flank steak salt
    • 1 tsp cornstarch soy sauce
    • 2 lb fresh asparagus with tight tips
    • 2 med onions
    • 2 clv garlic salad oil
    • 3 Tbsp. canned bean sauce
    • 1/2 tsp sugar


    1. Cut steak lengthwise in 2-1/2-inch strips, trimming off fat as you go.
    2. Then cut across the grain, in 1/8-inch thick strips. Put meat in bowl and add in 1 tsp. salt, cornstarch, and 2 tsp. soy sauce. Wash asparagus carefully, break off tough ends, and cut diagonally into pcs about 1/4-inch thick. (If you cat on a SHARP DIAGONAL, the pcs 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 possibly cleaver and remove skin. Heat a wide frying pan or possibly wok over highest heat, add in 1/4 c. oil, it should bubble slightly from the heat.
    3. Add in garlic and cook just till pale brown. Remove and throw away. Add in meat, stir frequently, and cook till almost browned. Remove to a bowl. Add in 3 Tbsp. more oil. Add in onion. Cook a minute or possibly two stirring constantly.
    4. Make a little hollow on top of the onion; add in bean sauce. Cook till onion starts to get translucent/soft. Add in asparagus and sprinkle over 1 tsp. salt, sugar and 1 Tbsp. soy sauce. Cover and cook, taking the top off occasionally to stir well, just till asparagus is tender-crisp. Then, put the meat on top. Cook, stirring,just long sufficient to get the meat reheated.
    5. Serve at once.
