Asian Inspired Asparagus

Total Time

This is a quick recipe I came up with on the spur of the moment for a flavorful side dish.


  1. After breaking the asparagus at its weak point and tossing the woody part out, I wrap the group of stalks with a rubberband to make them easier to cut.
  2. Then I cut the asparagus cross wise into 3/8" pieces. (Does not have to be precise).
  3. On medium heat, melt butter in a skillet and then add the asparagus pieces.
  4. Saute on medium heat for 3-4 minutes stirring frequently.
  5. Reduce temperature to low.
  6. Add Hoisin and Sweet Chili sauce to asparagus and stirring to mix thoroughly.
  7. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on low stirring frequently.
  8. Enjoy!
