Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars
Recipe By:KIMIRAEJ
"Makes even tough asparagus, tender and tasty! Try using vinaigrette dressing in place of the butter too."

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus spears
  • 5 g butter
  • 2 g salt
  • 710 ml water

Directions

  1. Place water in the bottom half of a steamer pan set. Add salt and butter, and bring to a boil.
  2. Trim the dry ends off of the asparagus. If the spears are thick, peel them lightly with a vegetable peeler. Place them in the top half of the steamer pan set. Steam for 5 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the asparagus, or until asparagus is tender.
