Pan-Fried Asparagus

Learn how to cook asparagus on the stove by pan-frying it in butter with garlic for a delicious Italian-style side dish. My family (even the kids) love asparagus cooked this way!

Pan-Fried Asparagus
  • ¼ cup butter

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 pound fresh asparagus spears, trimmed


    Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil, salt, and pepper; cook and stir until garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds.

    Add asparagus and cook until fork-tender, turning asparagus often to ensure even cooking, about 10 minutes.

    Serve and enjoy!
