Sauteed Asparagus

Simple, quick way to prepare asparagus. What's this you say? You don't like asparagus? If so, I bet you you're overcooking it... it should still be very slightly crunchy when eaten. And please -- don't ever boil asparagus away... it gets far too mushy and loses all its flavor! This recipe start to finish - about 12 mins; about 4 mins sauteeing time.

I actually added a tbsp of dijon mustard to the asparagus as it was sauteing. Added just a little more zip.

My personal preference with asparagus is to steam it. But I''m posting this recipe anyway -- it''s my father-in-law''s preferred way of serving asparagus.

Quick, easy, and delicious. I used more than a tablespoon of butter and sauteed for about seven minutes. Asparagus, which is in season now here in Las Vegas, was just slightly crunchy and loaded with great flavor. I'll make this again and again.

Another simple, easy to prepare dish that had great flavor! It also made an excellent side-dish for sgrishka's Oven-braised Brisket and Onions dish.

It's a simple but good way to make asparagus. It's the right consistency overall. I also added lemon and it was great.

I've made this before but substituted the butter with olive oil and I also cut some squash, zucchini, onions and a clove of fresh garlic. added season salt and pepper to taste.

With big fat aspagus: I peel the woody, fiberous outer layer from the lower portions of stalk with an ordinary potato peeler. Leaving the tender heart. Less waste. More goodness.

Very good, great flavor.

Excellent flavor! Tastes much better than steaming or boiling. I used less butter and a nonstick pan.
