My mother-in-law loves this recipe - and its so easy! Tastes great and for some reason makes people think its really fancy and difficult. Pairs well with red meat.

How to Make Sauteed Asparagus

Step-by-Step

  1. Snap the tough ends from the asparagus by hand (don't use a knife, you won't get all the tough parts). This recipe can be made with spears or can be chopped.
  2. Bring water to a boil, blanch the asparagus. About 5 minutes for thick stems, 2 for thin stems. Drain.
  3. Melt the butter in a pan. Saute the garlic until golden brown. Add the asparagus, salt and pepper and saute for a minute. Serve immediately.
