Serves: 6 as a side dish,9
Prep Time:20 mintues
A medium bundle of asparagus
1/4 pound pork loin
And entire head of garlicsalt
small red chile (optional)
Prep: Cut off the tough ends of the asparagus, or peel the lower
portions. Cut the asparagus into bite size pices. Wash them in a
bowl of water. Slice the pork into very thin small strips (much
easier to do if the pork is slightly frozen).
Peel all the garlic cloves and slice thickly.
Cook: Heat the wok. Add at least 3 T. lard. Throw the garlic in and
stir-fry til slightly browned. Throw in the pork and cook until
color changes, the garlic will also hopefully be very browned at
this point. Throw in the chile and about 1/2 teaspoon salt, stir
briefly. Throw in the asparagus, add 1/4-1/2 teaspoon MSG, stir-fry
a few mintues. Put in about 3/4 cup water, cover and cook until
asparagus is just tender. Add more salt to taste. Serve. Be sure to
eat the garlic also!
