  Vegetable oil/Peanut oil 2 Tablespoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), peeled and minced

  Cornstarch 1 Tablespoon (Mixed With 2 Tablespoon Soy Sauce And Cold Water)

2. Heat the oil in a 10- or 12-inch skillet, add the garlic, salt, and asparagus, and saute over moderate heat for 2 minutes.
3. Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a boil.
4. Add the cornstarch, water, and soy sauce mixture, stir, and bring to a boil again. Stir for 1 minute, add the pepper, and serve at once.
