Sautéed Asparagus Recipe

Update Servings
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon butter, olive oil, or mixture
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
Container: heavy skillet
  • Wash asparagus and snap off the tough ends (save ends for soup, if you wish). Cut stalks on the diagonal, into pieces about 2" long. Mix soy sauce with  4 tablespoons water.
  • Heat butter or oil in a heavy skillet and add asparagus. Cook, stirring to coat pieces, for a minute. Add soy sauce-water mix and cook (covered, if the asparagus is quite thick; uncovered, if  thin), until asparagus is crunchy-tender. Test for doneness every minute. (Taste a piece, or test with a sharp knife, to determine doneness.) The liquid should have mostly cooked away, leaving a slight glaze on the asparagus. Serve immediately.
