1/1 Photo of Really Tasty Sauteed Fresh Asparagus
Bone Man's Note:
Asparagus is the most under-used side dish veggie on the market, IMHO. These seasonings will bump it up for you significantly -- I get a LOT of compliments on this recipe from friends and family. The truth is, I use exactly these same seasonings on my Ospidillo Cafe Brussells Sprouts. Enjoy!

- 1Trim the Asparagus: You can do this by grabbing each end and snapping it -- it will break off the tough part. You keep the flower end for cooking and refrigerate/store the larger ends as a great ingredient for vegetable stock on some other occasion. If the asparagus is young enough and pencil-sized, you probably won't need to trim it at all.
- 2Clean the asparagus under cool, running water.
- 3In a large no-stick skillet, over medium heat, lay in the asparagus, melt the butter, add in the lemon juice, pour in the chicken stock, and pepper lightly with the ground white pepper. The seasoned salt and Mrs. Dash can also be added at this time.
- 4Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and allow the asparagus to sautee for about 20-25 minutes until tender, moving it around with a fork once in awhile.
- 5At the table, some folks like some melted cheese (Velveeta or other good melting cheese) over the asparagus while others enjoy some malt vinegar (or just a little good-quality balsamic vinegar) on it. I like it plain.
- 6Serve hot.
