Pork and Asparagus Stir-Fry

"I got this recipe from a Canadian Living Magazine. Our family really liked it. I used sherry, but you can use Chinese wine. You can use a different kind of mushroom if you prefer. I served it over rice."

  1. This is a nice stir-fry. Very nice, but it seems to be slightly under-seasoned to me. I added a little soy sauce, sesame oil and salt, and now I'm quite happy with it. I didn't season it so strongly that the flavor of the vegetables is washed out. From that point of view, this is a nice place to start seasoning, cautiously. I also prefer green onion, and even asparagus in somewhat smaller pieces. I'd like to give 4 1/2 stars here, but can't. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
  2. Delicious. I madee the recipe as directed except for adding a little sesame oil. A great way to use up leftover pork.
  3. Served over lo mein noodles, using leftover roast pork and--drat-- the only mushrooms in the house at the moment--product of USA canned buttons...and it was a great meal. Omitted the sugar and green onions. The sauce was nicely balanced and the flavor of the asparagus ruled. Thank you.


I am a stay-at-home-mom of two young children. Of course I am also a wife to a wonderful husband. I love to cook and try new dishes. I also love watching hockey, I'm a big Edmonton Oilers fan. I also like the CFL, Canadian football and watching the Blue Jays! I'm always looking for new recipes, especially ones that are on the healthier side and help in my weight loss journey. It's not a diet it's a lifestyle change. Everyone loves my homemade Caesar salad. <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/snow-queens-sm.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v51/tiggrr34/?action=view&current=HolidayOrnamentSwapTag2c-1-1-1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v51/tiggrr34/HolidayOrnamentSwapTag2c-1-1-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg">
