    mianbao's Note:

    Tofu is the mashed potatoes of Asia. It's not just for vegetarians. It soaks up beef juices and becomes wonderfully flavorful.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Bring 2 to 3 cups water to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.
    2. 2
      When it is boiling rapidly, add all the asparagus EXCEPT the tips.
    3. 3
      When the water begins boiling again, add the tips, and boil for about 1 minute.
    4. 4
      The aim is for the asparagus to still be crunchy, so judge cooking time by whether it is thin or thick.
    5. 5
      Drain and reserve.
    6. 6
      Mix cornflour with water and keep handy.
    7. 7
      Heat oil in a frying pan or wok.
    8. 8
      Cook the beef, green onion and grated ginger until the beef shows just a little red.
    9. 9
      Add the beef broth, sugar, oyster sauce, soy sauce and tofu, being careful not to break up the tofu very much.
    10. 10
      Simmer over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes, until the pieces of tofu are warm inside.
    11. 11
      Stir in the asparagus.
    12. 12
      When the asparagus is done to your liking add cornflour-water mixture and remove from heat.

      This was super good! I did make a mistake and used silken tofu, which made the texture a little iffy, but the flavor was excellent. Next time I will serve this over rice (making rice today with the leftover sauce, it's so good). Thanks mianbao!

      Had all the ingredients, did it as prescribed and everyone enjoyed. It was a very nice meal and will definitely recur with this recipe, One to keek and it gives you the opportunity to eat tofu.

      THis was a nice dish for using tofu....It really soaked in the flavor. I only gave a 3 star because of the beef. Although I sliced it thinly, I thought, it came out a little tough. My suggestion is to remove the beef after lite frying and add it back with the asparagus to finish cooking.
