DIRECTIONS

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