Ingredients

2 lbs. asparagus
1/3 c. butter
1/3 c. water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper


Break of each asparagus stalk as far down as it snaps easily. Cut off scales with knife. Scrub with soft brush to remove all sand. Lay 1 or 2 stalks together on a cutting board; cut diagonally, making bias slices about 1" long and 1/4" thick. You will have about 4 c. asparagus.



Heat butter & water to boiling in heavy skillet with tight fitting lid. Add asparagus and seasonings. Cover & cook over high heat 5 min, shaking skillet occasionally. Check with fork to see if asparagus is tender-crisp. If not, cook 1 or 2 min. longer, adding 1 Tb. water, if necessary. Water should be evaporated at end of cooking.
