Beef and Asparagus Stir-fry

Great dish that can be done very quickly and goes great with any Asian meal.
Beef and Asparagus Stir-fry
The main thing to watch out for in this dish to not to overcook the both the meat and the veg. This walkthrough instructs that you cook the meat separately and then adding it back again, as a way to better control the cooking times and prevent overcooking.

Ingredients for 2:
200-300 grams beef (I used sirloin) - cut into chunks or thick strips
150-200 grams Asparagus - trimmed and cut to about 2 inch lengths
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 tablespoon soya sauce
3 cloves garlic - sliced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
cooking oil

1. Season beef with salt and pepper. Heat some cooking oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat. When oil is heated, sear the beef on all sides but keep it at medium rare. Remove from pan and set aside.

2. Reduce heat to medium or medium low. Add a little more cooking oil if needed. Then add in the garlic, asparagus and ginger. Fry for 2-3 minutes until the asparagus is almost cooked through. Then add the beef back in the pan and stir-fry for 30 seconds mixing well.

3. Add soya sauce and sesame oil and toss. You an turn off the heat at this point. Dish on the serving plate and serve immediately.
