Gingered Beef With Leeks And Asparagus

Recipe By :Ming Tsai
Serving Size : 4

6 slices ginger
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup Canola oil
1/4 cup soy sauce -- thin
1/2 cup Chinese rice wine -- shaoshing
1 pound flank steak -- thinly sliced against the grain
1 tablespoon Canola oil
4 bunches leeks -- julienne (white part only)
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons minced ginger
1 bunch asparagus -- cut in 2-inch pieces and blanched
Salt and black pepper to taste

To make marinade, mix first 6 ingredients and thoroughly mix with the beef. Let stand for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight, refrigerated. In a hot pan or wok, coat with Canola oil and add leeks, garlic and ginger. Stir for 3 minutes to caramelize. Add drained beef and stir for 2 minutes. Add asparagus and heat thoroughly. Check for seasoning. Serve immediately with starch of choice. For me, that means rice.
