We like this with steak, but asparagus is a great garnish for chicken, pork, fish or on its own with rice or noodles.
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 large knob ginger, peeled and finely sliced or grated
2 long red chillies, sliced
4 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced
Half of a medium onion, sliced
20 asparagus spears, stalks snapped off
1 Tbsp kecap manis
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp honey
1/3 cup chicken stock
Heat vegetable oil in a wok on high until shimmering.
Add ginger, chillies, garlic and onion and toss for a minute or two. Add asparagus, toss, then add remaining ingredients. Bring to the boil and stir until asparagus is just cooked and sauce has reduced to a glaze.
Serves 4 as a side.
