The asparagus were cut into 2” lengths and were brought to a boil over high heat…
… and boiled for one minute.
The ingredients are gathered and organized on a tray to bring out to the grill. When stir-frying you must move fast, so some organization before you start is very helpful in getting things right at the grill.
The wok is at 600 degrees and some peanut oil has been pre-heated and the shallots, ginger and garlic have been added and are stir fried for about 15 seconds.
The asparagus, mushrooms and carrot are added and stir-fried for one minute.
The tomatoes, and all of the other wet and dry ingredients go on last and are stir-fried for a final minute.
The Wok-Seared veggies were served with some Crispy Chili Beef and Brown Rice.
These veggies were surprisingly good. I liked them as much as the Crispy Chili Beef and for me that is saying something.
The various prep steps made it so all of the veggies were equally tender but crispy, despite their original hardness or softness.
This was a very tasty meal and the flavor of the veggies held their own against the chili beef.
This dish will definitely be made again.

This tasty side dish was like a little class on the theories of stir-fry cooking. You had veggies of various sizes and textures that had to be handles differently to insure they would cook up evenly. The hardest veggies, the carrots and celery, were cut into a very fine julienne cut and went on the wok first. The asparagus was par boiled and cut into small pieces and went on the wok next. The cherry tomatoes were halved and the soft mushroom had the caps quartered and they went on last because they needed the least time to soften up. The resulting stir fry was an incredible blend of flavors. All it took was a little advanced preparation and planning to get a great stir fry.
