Mavis's Asparagus and Water Chestnuts
| Cut the
asparagus in 1½" diagonal slices as follows: start at the tip and
cut toward the bottom stem until it feels tough. Either throw away the
tough part or use it for Cream of Asparagus Soup. A few tough ends will
ruin this dish.
Fry the bacon in a wok or heavy skillet until crisp. remove and
drain on paper towels. Add the asparagus and garlic to the hot bacon fat
and stir. cover for 1 minute. Add the water chestnuts and stir-fry about
1 minute until edges are golden. Check for seasoning and add salt, if
needed. Garnish with crumbled bacon and serve at once.
For more Oriental flavor, add 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger
with the garlic.
