This is a very good recipe for anyone who isn't crazy about asparagus. I omitted the extra salt because of the soy sauce, kept out the sugar, and used rice vinegar instead of cider (because I had it on hand). I also don't like asparagus mushy, so I didn't saute too long. I liked this so much I made another batch after dinner. Read More

It was good but a bit soggy. I might make it again but I was not thrilled with it as I had hoped. Read More

This recipe was so simple yet the outcome is so delicious! Anyone with very little time to cook but who wants to make a delicious meal should try this. I substituted white wine that I had for the sherry (Rachel Ray taught me to use any wine if you don't have sherry) and just used regular vinegar. I also put a handful of asparagus in along with some frozen cooked shrimp. I make this quite often when I want a great healthy meal but don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Read More

Delicious quick and easy to make. I don't usually like asparagus but I did using this recipe. I didn't have any sherry so didn't use that. Read More

This was very good. I forgot the cornstartch by accident and it was still great not as thick obviously but still very tasty. I substituted Splenda for the sugar for a low-cal side dish. I will make this again. Thanks for a wonderful recipe. Read More

Yummers!! I liked this a lot! The sauce was a unique flavor and suited the asparagus well. I deglazed the pan with a little white wine. I can see using this sauce in a vaierty of different dishes---it's that good. The asparagus was very crisp. We very fighting for the last pieces!! Read More
