I used this recipe the first time I ever cooked asparagus, it was quick to make, simple ingredients and the whole family enjoyed it.

I must say this was a great recipe! Very quick and tasty. With all the hours of work, there is not alot of time to cook during the week. This was very quick.

What an amazing stir-fry recipe! I continue to be astonished that so few ingredients prepared so simply can yield such delectable results. Even my husband, who is highly suspicious of "new" food, declared this dish to be outstanding! I made it exactly as written the first time, then added just shy of a tablespoon of chili-garlic sauce and 1 tsp. of toasted sesame oil to the hoisin-sugar sauce the second time: both versions were excellent, but we will likely continue with the additions more often than not simply because we enjoy slightly spicy foods. It can take a bit of time to prep this, but I love the fact that all of the prep work may be done well in advance, making this an ideal recipe for a work night. Thanks so much for posting--it is now officially part of our regular rotation!

I added green onions,mushrooms, & cashews. YUM! I made this for four but neglected to increase hoisin or brown sugar. It was still good but could have used more sauce for flavor--I'll try again. It was worth it!

This was not to our taste; we had not used hoisin sauce before, and along with the sugar it was just a little too sweet and not salty enough. If you are looking for a mild, slightly sweet dish, this would be the one.

We really liked this alot! I made it as written, thought I doubled it. I ended up not using all the sauce though. Served this with peas and brown rice and it was great. Thanks for posting!

Oh my gosh this was soo good! I used a spicy thai chili sauce instead of the hoisin for a bit of a kick. This was wonderful.
