Wash asparagus carefully, break off tough ends, and cut diagonally into pieces about 1/4 inch thick.
Cut onions in half lengthwise, lay cut side down, and slice crosswise into 1/4 -inch slices.
Smash garlic cloves with flat side of knife or cleaver and remove skin.
Heat a wide frying pan or wok over highest heat, add 1/4 cup oil; it should bubble slightly from the heat.
Add garlic and cook just until pale brown.
Remove and discard.
Add meat, stir frequently, and cook until almost browned.
Remove to a bowl.
Add 3 tablespoons more oil.
Cook a minute or two, stirring constantly.
Make a little hollow on top of onion,- add bean sauce.
Cook until onion starts to get translucent.
Add asparagus and sprinkle over 1 teaspoon salt, sugar, and 1 tablespoon soy sauce.
