An easy veggie stir-fry to serve over steamed rice. Sometimes I add water chestnuts and mushrooms.

My husband & I tried this last night along with the Bourbon Chicken recipe from RecipeZaar. Yummm. What a wonderful meal. The sauce was not as soupy as shown in the pic , it thicken up around the asparagus giving the stalks a great flavor. The crushed red pepper flakes added that extra little kick that took this meal to the next level. 5 stars for us. We will fix again!

Oh my, Nurse Di!! This was great asparagus!! Happened to come upon some on special,usually quite expensive in the middle of winter here, so this was a real treat and had to be a really good recipe and wow this was!!!!We loved the garlic, ginger and pepper flakes, wonderful taste treat! I did have to use beef broth; didn't have any chicken broth, don't think it made any difference at all. Thanks for sharing this tasty veg, we will be preparing it again!
