Asparagus George Style
|Fresh asparagus||1 Pound (must be tender, pencil-size is best)|
|Chopped garlic||1 Teaspoon|
|White wine||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (only good drinking wine)|
|Canola oil||1 Teaspoon|
In large frying pan heat butter and oil.
Saute garlic, stirring for about five minutes or until it begins to turn light brown.
Add asparagus and saute for about five minutes.
The asparagus should still be tender crisp.
Add the wine and simmer for two to three minutes.
You can also saute fresh mushrooms or onions before adding the asparagus.
Allow each to cook to desired doneness; however, the asparagus must be crisp.
If not, George won't eat it! Any leftovers make excellent cream of asparagus soup.
