- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons oriental sesame oil
- 2 large garlic cloves, chopped
- 2 pounds asparagus, ends trimmed, cut on diagonal into 2-inch-long pieces

Stir soy sauce and sugar in small bowl until sugar dissolves. Heat oil in heavy large skillet. Add garlic and stir 15 seconds. Add asparagus and stir-fry until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Add soy mixture and toss until asparagus is coated, about 1 minute longer. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to bowl; sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
