A close friend taught me how to prepare this dish. It has become my favorite side dish, and I'm sure you will love it too! I enjoy eating it with grilled steaks on a warm, summer night. It's simple, but quite tasty.

Ingredients

How to Make Pan-seared Asparagus

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat olive oil in a large skillet
  2. Once heated, spread salt and pepper evenly across bottom of skillet (or pour over asparagus after it is cooked - your choice!)
  3. Rince asparagus stalks and chop off the ends
  4. Add 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.
  5. Serve hot and enjoy!
