Asparagus is easy to prepare and makes an elegant addition to any meal.
|2 tablespoons vegetable oil|
|1 pound asparagus, trimmed and peeled|
|Freshly ground black pepper|
|3 tablespoons unsalted butter|
|1 cup low-sodium chicken broth, Directions|
- Set a 12-inch straight-sided saute pan over high heat.
- Add oil to saute pan; heat until barely smoking.
- Add asparagus in a single layer to saute pan; season asparagus with salt and black pepper. Cook asparagus without moving until lightly browned, about 1 to 1 ½ minutes. Shake saute pan and continue cooking asparagus for 1 to 1 ½ minutes more.
- Add butter and stock to saute pan; cover pan. Continue cooking asparagus, covered, for about 7 to 10 minutes, until asparagus is tender and butter and stock have emulsified and reduced to a shiny glaze. Note: If stock has completely evaporated, you can top asparagus with a few tablespoons of water.
