The Clever Cooking Method For Tender, Browned Asparagus
For beautifully tender and flavorful browned asparagus, the best and easiest cooking method combines steaming and sautéeing.
When sautéed over high heat, the sugars in the asparagus will caramelize to add a rich, slightly sweet flavor, but the stalk will need some extra help to cook through evenly.
After sautéeing the stalks in a pan with oil for a few minutes to crisp up the outsides, cover the pan with a lid to trap the heat, creating steam to soften the veggie.
Allow the stalks to sit untouched, save for shaking the pan intermittently, until they're tender. The result will be a browned, caramelized asparagus with a fork-tender center.
