2 tbsp cornstarch (corn flour) dissolved in 2 tbsp water
2 cups (500ml) beef stock
5 tsp. hot and salted fermented soybean paste
1 tsp. chili (chilli) oil

1. Wash the beef and cut into slices 2 inches long by 1 inch wide and 1/8 inch thick(5 cm by 25mm by 4mm). Slice the asparagus. Seed and chop the chili peppers.

2. Place beef in a bowl and add the salt , cornstarch-water mixture,soy sauce, soy bean paste (chopped ) and rice wine. Mix well.

3. Heat the oil in a wok over low heat to about 230oF (110oC), or until bubbles appear around a  small piece of scallion or ginger
