Stir-fry Asparagus with Cloud Ear Fungus

This is one of my family favorite stir-fry I would like to share with you. The original recipe from my cookbook collection uses white fungus, since I am out of the white, I replaced it with the cloud ear fungus.


  • 1 cup cloud ear fungus ( pre soaked and cleaned)
  • 1/2 lb Pork
  • 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp cooking wine
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/2 lb Asparagus
  • 1 tbsp Ginger (julienne)
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1/3 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 3 tbsp water

  • Marinate pork with soy sauce, wine and corn starch
  • Cut Asparagus in about 1.5 inch long
  • On a stir fry pan, heat about 1 tbsp oil, stir in ginger until fragrant.
  • Add in asparagus and 2 tbsp water and stir for about 2-3 minutes until steamy. Removed and set aside.
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil and stir fry pork until turn cooked.
  • Add in fungus, asparagus and sauce. Stir to mix well.

I have only eaten white fungus in deserts. There something special about these fungus, black or white, crunchy,light and absolutely delicious. Asparagus and black fungus do pair well, great color and not to mention the health benefits!
