    JustJanS's Note:

    I love this when the fresh asparagus is in season. Sometimes I throw in some onion wedges or a red capsicum for colour with the asparagus. Prep time includes marinating time.

      I used a bit more meat than called for in the recipe so I ended up with no marinade left over. At the end of the cooking process I used some sherry and soy sauce and then added the cornstarch. It was pretty salty, next time I would probably just use some beef stock instead.

      Perfect for a quick dinner! Hubby rang and told me he was one hour away from home and really hungry. So I prepared the meat and cut up the asparagus straight away and when he arrived came home it only took about seven minute to cook. I also added red onions as suggested and he said it was fantastic. I think you could add any veggies on hand. Thank you JustJanS
