Chinese Beef and Asparagus With Black Bean Sauce
25 mins (prep 25)
13 ingredients
4-5 servings
The second of my three favorite Chinese recipes, adapted from The Frugal Gourmet. Since I don't like CRISP asparagus that tastes like grass to me, I make below the suggestion that you steam the asparagus briefly. I serve this over rice but it'd be good over noodles too.
