Instructions Checklist
  • Drizzle olive oil into a large skillet over medium-high heat and heat. Once oil is hot add asparagus spears; cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add water and cover to steam asparagus and keep it from drying out. Continue cooking for another 5 minutes or until asparagus is tender. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note:

When trimming your asparagus, you want to snap each one where it wants to break on the lower 1/3 of the stalk. This will give you the best parts of the asparagus and will avoid the tough part.
