Asparagus Spears with Mushrooms

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

Tender asparagus and mushrooms get loads of flavor from garlic and Dijon mustard.


  1. Place asparagus in skillet, adding just enough water to cover.
  2. Boil for 5 to 7 minutes, or until asparagus is crisp-tender.
  3. Drain well, return asparagus to skillet, and add remaining ingredients.
  4. Cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes or until mushrooms have heated through.

Delightful combination! My asparagus were very skinny and I do like them crunchy so I did not preboil them. I put the butter, mustard and mushrooms on the skillet heated the mushrooms through and then added damp asparagus, cooked for 3 minutes stirred them twice and they were perfect. Had a picky eater for dinner and they disappeared from her plate in a hurry Thanks TGirl,RN for a very good recipe

Delicious -- my new favorite way to make asparagus. I used the skinny asparagus for this dish, cooking it about half the time indicated and it was just perfect with steak and baked potatoes. Thanks for sharing! This is a keeper for sure.

Agree with Ellie2, perfect side dish with sirloin steaks for dinner today. The mustard in the sauce enhanced the meat! Since we like asparagus barely tender I did not add it until the mushrooms/sauce mixture was done, it was perfect! A keeper!!
