Recipe Ingredients for Stir-Fried Pork With Asparagus

1 pound asparagus
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon rice wine
1/2 pound boneless pork chops
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons canola oil
1 garlic clove, sliced

Recipe Directions for Stir-Fried Pork With Asparagus

  1. Snap or cut off the tough ends of the asparagus, and if desired, strip off the small leaves on the spear up to 2 inches from the tip. Cut on the diagonal into 2-inch lengths.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and wine. Cut the pork into 1/4 inch thick strips the same length as the asparagus. Add to the cornstarch mixture and mix well. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and sugar.

  3. In a wok or stir-fry pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over high heat until hot but not smoking. Test by dipping a piece of asparagus into the oil; it should sizzle. Add the asparagus and stir just until they turn a darker green, about 30 seconds. Add 1/4 cup water, cover the pan, and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until tender, 3 to 5 minutes, depending upon the thickness of the spears. Transfer the asparagus and any liquid to a platter.

  4. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the same pan and heat over high heat. Add the garlic and stir until the oil is hot and the garlic sizzles. Stir up the pork mixture, add to the pan, and cook, stirring constantly, until the pork is no longer pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the soy sauce mixture and stir for about 20 seconds. Return the asparagus to the pan and stir for another 30 seconds or so, until well mixed. Serve immediately.
