The Best Steamed Asparagus
June 17, 2011

I took advice from others and added garlic, salt, and pepper... as well as the Pinot Grigio and butter. I also garnished with dill. The resulting dish was very tasty. Since there is considerable variation in member's comments, I might add that perhaps the quality of ingredients could be an issue. For example, if you start with a cheap wine, don't expect stellar results. If you add garlic salt, rather than garlic and salt, don't expect a miracle. The same applies to the freshness of all ingredients, from asparagus (which can be like wood) to pepper. If you are not using a pepper mill, then you are not using pepper. Think sawdust. Fortunately, salt is a rock. Even then, sea salt tastes very different from rock salt. Just some food for thought. :-)
