1/4 dried chili peppers, minced   0.1 g
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Prepare the vegetables: Trim the asparagus then cut them into 3-4 cm pieces; cut the mushrooms in half or quarters; finely chop the onion; mince the garlic.
  2. Heat half of the oil in a skillet or wok over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic then sauté 3 min until the onion becomes translucent. Add the asparagus, mushrooms and corn. Stir in the chili pepper, season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the asparagus is tender and lightly browned, about 5 min. Remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the vegetables to a plate.
  3. Cut the meat into thin 5 cm-long strips, then toss them with the cornstarch until coated. Reheat the skillet over high heat with the remaining oil. Add the meat and cook, without stirring, until browned on one side, about 2 min, then sauté 1 min with stirring. Add the vegetable mixture and the water, then bring to a boil. Cook, with tossing, until the sauce has thickened slightly, about 1 min.
  4. Adjust the seasoning, then serve on the warmed plates.
