A yummy asparagus side dish. I also have used canned asparagus in this recipe.

This was very good, but I think next time, I may put all of the ingredients in a stir fry pan and fast fry the asparagus. Neither DH or I liked the texture of the steamed asparagus and the sauce kid-of just dripped off onto the place. But with that said, the flavor of the sauce was great and we both enjoyed the flavor. Just a little change in the cooking method for us next time.
