Another great way to prepare asparagus. I added fresh not roasted garlic and I also used olive oil rather than butter. Great side dish for my grilled soy and garlic marinated chicken breasts. I mixed the remaining chicken and asparagus with white rice to make a one-dish lunch for us later this week. Read More

Quick easy & deliciou! The second time I made it I actually followed the recipe but doubled the teriyaki sauce then tossed it with hot cooked spaghetti noodles. My husband loved it! Read More

Way better than a routine vegetable side dish. I used "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter " spread--the one with only 5 calories per tablespoon--instead of butter and it turned out great. Highly recommended. Read More

We usually steam our asparagus and sprinkle it with salt and lime juice but this was just as yummy! I used soy sauce instead of teriyaki and sprinkled it with a little salt. Thanks for your recipe Sharon it's a nice alternative to our usual way of cooking asparagus. Read More

This was great with the changes I made I actually was cooking from memory. I cooked in a skillet with some olive oil the garlic added the asparagus then put about 1/2 cup of the teriyaki sauce in and covered it and let the sauce steam the asparagus. I actually like my vegetables on the soft side so I left it for about 10 minutes. It was wonderful. Read More

Great recipe. I realized after I had started cooking that I didn't have teriyaki sauce so I did quick sauce of BBQ sauce a splash of red wine vinegar a squirt of sweet hot mustard and it turned out great. I can't wait to try it with teriyaki sauce! Read More

This wasn't too bad. Was a way to have asparagus differently but I still prefer it where the flavor isn't masked by something else. Read More
