Recipe by scionix

I got this from a friend. It's one of those easy recipes that makes people think you know what you're doing in the kitchen. I love those. (As with all of my recipes, I guessed on the amounts cause I always just eye it.)

We really enjoyed the asparagus prepared this way. Wow, it had flavor, love the addition of the vinegar and brown sugar, it really elevates the dish with another layer of flavor. I will definitely be making this again. It was quick and easy to make with great results, lovely textures and great flavor. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Whats on the Menu? Tag Game 2015.
