Chinese stir-fried asparagus

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Fresh asparagus
¼ cup Chicken stock or bouillon; (1/4 to 1/2)
2 tablespoons Peanut oil
1 Green onion; cut in 1/2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon Soy sauce; (can be low sodium type) or chopped black bean sauce (available in Oriental markets)
½ teaspoon Sugar

Discard tough fibrous ends of asparagus. Cut stalks diagonally in 1 to 1½-inch sections. If desired, blanch stalks only (cook briefly in boiling water or in microwave). Combine stock, soy sauce and sugar. Heat oil in a wok. Add asparagus. Stir-fry to coat with oil; heat through. Add stock mixture; heat quickly. Add green onion. Simmer, covered, over medium heat until asparagus is done, about 3 minutes. Serves 3 to 4.
