How to Make Pan-seared Asparagus
- 1Pre-heat olive oil in a large skillet
- 2Once heated, spread salt and pepper evenly across bottom of skillet (or pour over asparagus after it is cooked - your choice!)
- 3Rince asparagus stalks and chop off the ends
- 4Add asparagus to the hot skillet. Keep covered while cooking, except when stirring. This will allow the stalks to soften on the inside. Stir every couple minutes to blend the asparagus with the other ingredients, and because the exterior of the stalks will brown quickly.
- 5Serve hot and enjoy!
