Browned Butter Asparagus
DirectionsCook asparagus in 1" salted boiling water for about 5-7 minutes to crisp-tender, or until desired tenderness is reached.
(Or microwave the asparagus to desired doneness.
) Drain asparagus and return to hot saucepan and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat butter over med-high heat.
After about 3 minutes, it should start to foam; stir constantly and add garlic, salt and pepper.
When foaming stops, butter should be browned and kind of "grainy" looking.
Remove from heat; stir in sugar.
Pour browned butter mixture over cooked asparagus.
