Asparagus Beef Stir-Fry

6 teaspoons olive or canola oil, divided
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger or 3 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot, divided
Dash pepper
1 beef flank steak (1 pound), thinly sliced
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup beef broth
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1-1/2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
1/4 cup chopped green onions
4 cups hot cooked rice

In a shallow glass container, combine 2 teaspoons of oil, sugar, salt, half of the ginger and pepper. Add beef and turn to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, broth, soy sauce, vinegar and remaining ginger until blended; set aside.

In a large skillet or wok, brown beef in 2 teaspoons oil. Remove and keep warm. Add remaining oil; stir-fry asparagus for 3-5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add water chestnuts and onions; stir-fry for 1 minute.

Stir cornstarch mixture; add to the skillet. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Return beef to the pan; heat through. Serve over rice. Makes 6 servings.
