So simple yet so delicious. I cut way back on the butter and oil; but kept the seasonings the same. We will be making this again for sure. We served it with salmon.

Very simple recipe, very simple flavors! I am a big fan of asparagus and this was a tasty way to make it. I chopped the garlic fairly big (for garlic anyway) and added a squeeze of lemon juice to my second helping. You should try that, it was really yummy. I even got a 6 year old to eat a few pieces. I will make this many times! thanks

Really good and quick! Slightly crispy asparagus for a change. Used roasted garlic and it was delicious. Thanks, Nimz!

This was really good! Served it tonight with pork steaks and brown rice. I wanted something that wasn't smothered, so the hollandaise that I was planning to make went out the door. I cut back a bit on the butter and salt, and left the rest of the amounts the same for 1 lb of asparagus. To avoid burning the garlic, I dumped my veggies in as soon as I stirred garlic into the hot oil. This cooked for me in about 10 minutes. Very good, and I'll be making it again!

So, apparently cooking asparagus is still a wee bit lost on me! I used 1 1/2 tbsps butter and 1 tsp oil (for 9 spears), 1/2 tsp salt(bit salty) and small 1/4 tsp pepper. That was all fine, but I started on, not even, med heat and the butter was browning and the garlic started browning almost immediately... that was all fine too, but then I cooked the asparagus for as long as stated (lowered the heat - terrible stove, I know it.) and it was very soggy. I think I need it at 6 mins or so to cook it still crisp. Thanks for your base recipe, I will get this right :o)

I just so enjoyed these! Added a little lemon to the butter at the end for a bit of a sauce and served them with filet steak

Yummy! I was looking for a way to cook asparagus on the stovetop and this was up our alley. I doubled the garlic and chopped them rather large and added lemon juice at the end. I also left out the oil and used less butter. Next time I'll try it with parmesan on top. Thanks for a great recipe!

This really is a great tasting way to have asparagus. I, too, used a bit less butter and oil. The garlic and kosher salt are wonderful. I served lemon wedges on the side for those who prefer it that way. Very good! Thank you for a wonderful recipe.
