This dish is SO easy and fast, but it looks amazingly elegant and impressive on the plate alongside a variety of main dishes. Try it!


  1. Cut bottoms off asparagus, then cut remainder of stalks into 2-inch pieces.
  2. Melt butter in pan over medium heat- do not burn.
  3. Add garlic for about 30 seconds, then add asparagus.
  4. Stir fry until asparagus is tender.

Thank you for an easy, very tasty recipe that's a cut above the usual steamed asparagus. It went well with the baked chicken I served tonight.

This side dish was good. I added a little salt to it, and that made it a lot better. It was easy to make and I will be making it again.

This is an amazingly easy recipe. It gets done in no time flat and tastes wonderful. It does need some salt, but other than that it is perfection.
