Ingredients

  • 1 lb asparagus
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Salt, as desired

Directions

1. Trim off the hard stem areas of the asparagus.  This is usually the bottom 1-2 inches of the asparagus.  I line them up on a cutting board and cut off tough bottom parts.

3. After the butter is heated, add asparagus and saute for about 3 minutes or until almost tender.

4. Add garlic and saute for a minute.
