A few readers emailed me about Chinese asparagus beef recipe, one of the more popular beef recipes you can order at Chinese restaurants in the United States. Asparagus is a great vegetable to cook, especially with the protein of your choice, be it chicken, beef, or shrimp. I love the idea of asparagus beef, in a savory sauce, with some red bell peppers, and hence this asparagus beef recipe that goes very well with steamed white or brown nice.

One of the common mistakes of Chinese stir-fry is the sauce—gloppy, gooey, and starchy brown sauce that makes the entire dish unappetizing. The best Chinese stir-fries should be light, with just the right amount of sauce coating the beef or chicken. The beef should be sliced against the grain so they are tender when cooked, and the Chinese techniques of “velveting” and marinating the protein with some cornstarch makes the meat even more juicy and tender. I discussed all the techniques of Chinese stir-frying and cooking in my cookbook Easy Chinese Recipes. If you are interested, you can get a copy at Amazon.

Anyway, another technique of making meat (beef or chicken) extra juicy and moist is to seal in the moisture content in the meat by flash frying the meat in really hot oil, or a quick stir-fry until they are half cooked. I always use the second method, which is outlined in the recipe section.

Here is my asparagus beef recipe. If you don’t eat beef, you can always make it with chicken or shrimp. Either way, it is a delicious dish that you and your family will enjoy. Bon appetit!

    Black sauce? I’m familiar with lots of Asian ingredients, but never heard of black sauce. What is the base of this sauce?

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! I prepared it with chicken, added mushrooms, used a green pepper vs red, and had to substitute gin for the wine due to not having any. I will definitely be making this dish again soon! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Rasa, what is black sauce? Is it black bean sauce or black vinegar sauce? My search on the internet says black bean but my local grocer did not have it. I put a bit of black vinegar in and we will see what happens tonight. Both are a bit sour if remember correctly.

    Hi Bee, I’m from singapore and am lovin your site. Btw, it’s so cute how you say “black sauce” and no one understands that it is our (Malaysian / Singaporean) slang for dark soy sauce.
