An easy delicious recipe. The recipe comes from a grocery store pamphlet.
- 1 lb asparagus, washed trimmed and cut into 3-inch lengths
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup chicken broth
- Melt butter in skillet; stir in sugar until dissolved; add asparagus and sauté about 2 minutes turning gently.
- Add broth; cover and cook over low heat 3 minutes; cook uncovered about 2 minutes until sauce thickens and asparagus is tender, serve.
This recipe was quick to prepare, and really delicious. The whole family enjoyed it. Thanks!
This replaces my previous review in which I found this dish to be very sweet & oily and gave it a rating of two. Possibly I was a little heavy handed with the butter and sugar, I don't know. Anyway, I made it again tonight using vegetable stock as last time, and cutting back a bit on the butter and sugar. We really enjoyed it! The asparagus came out a perfect tender/crisp, and the sauce had a delicately sweet flavour. It needed no salt or pepper. Thanks, Barb!
This is an excellent way to prepare asparagus! I made exactly as posted and it is so simple and the flavor is wonderful. The asparagus is still a little crunchy with just the right sweetness. This recipe will be going into my keeper cookbook! Thank you for posting!
