    Do not use pencil-thin asparagus; it cannot withstand the heat and overcooks too easily. Adapted from Cook's Illustrated.

    1. 1
      Heat oil and butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. When butter has melted, add half of the asparagus to the skillet with tips pointed in one direction; add remaining spears with tips pointed in the opposite direction.
    2. 2
      Using tongs, distribute spears in an even layer (spears will not quite fit into single layer). Cover skillet; cook until asparagus is bright green and still crisp, about 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Uncover, increase heat to high and season asparagus with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until spears are tender and well-browned along one side, 5 - 7 minutes, using tongs to occasionally move spears from the center of the pan to the edge of the pan to ensure all are browned.
    4. 4
      Transfer to serving dish, adjust seasonings as needed and, if desired, squeeze lemon over spears. Serve immediately.

      I was using both racks of my oven for other dinner items but I wanted roasted asparagus so I figured I would try your method. I like thin asparagus and I used all butter instead of olive oil. These turned out really good. My son loved them and cleaned the pan. Simple and easy side dish. Loved it!
