Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 2 slices beef tenderloin (200 g)
  • 1 onion (small) (120 g)
  • 2-4 spears green asparagus
  • [Ginger sauce]

    • 15 g ginger (grated)
    • 50 ml mirin
    • 2 tbsp soy sauce
    • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Vegetable oil

Directions

1

Cut the onion in half vertically, then cut into slices 7 to 8 mm thick. Cut the woody part off of the bases of the asparagus, and peel the bottom 3 cm or so of the asparagus, then cut into easy-to-eat pieces. Boil the asparagus in lightly salted water, then transfer to cold water and strain.

2

Sprinkle both sides of the beef with a pinch of each of salt and pepper.

3

Oil a frying pan with 1/2 tbsp of vegetable oil and preheat over medium heat, then add the beef. Cook both sides to the desired doneness, then wrap in aluminum foil and let rest for 2-3 min.

4

In the same frying pan, lightly stir-fry the sliced onion until tender, then remove.

5

Mix together the ingredients for the ginger sauce, then pour into the same frying pan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, to cook down somewhat.

6

Put the onion and asparagus on a serving plate, then top with the beef, cut into easy-to-eat slices. Pour the ginger sauce over top and serve.
