This is one of the easiest methods of cooking asparagus – and also one of the most delicious!
1 lb asparagus, trimmed
1/8 cup butter
2 T. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
Seasonings such as salt & pepper
Melt the butter in a frying pan. Stir in the olive oil, seasonings and garlic. Cook for a short moment, being careful not to brown the garlic.
Add the asparagus and cook for 10 minutes, turning the asparagus to make sure they are covered in the butter sauce.
