directions

  • After breaking the asparagus at its weak point and tossing the woody part out, I wrap the group of stalks with a rubberband to make them easier to cut.
  • Then I cut the asparagus cross wise into 3/8" pieces. (Does not have to be precise).
  • On medium heat, melt butter in a skillet and then add the asparagus pieces.
  • Saute on medium heat for 3-4 minutes stirring frequently.
  • Reduce temperature to low.
  • Add Hoisin and Sweet Chili sauce to asparagus and stirring to mix thoroughly.
  • Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on low stirring frequently.
  • Enjoy!

    Very yummy! I didn't have hoisin sauce so used spicy brown bean sauce and it was wonderful. Thanks! Made for being VIP in the Feb. veggie swap.
