Food Friday: Asparagus with Garlic and Onions

I found this on and it is really simple and oh so good. Phil loved it!

1/2 C water
1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed*
1 C diced white onion
1/4 C butter
4 cloves of garlic, minced
salt and black pepper to taste

*to trim asparagus, snap the lower segment off (kind of like snapping beans)

  1. Pour into a skillet. Place asparagus and ionion in the skillet.
  2. Bring water to a boil over medium heat.
  3. Cover skillet and steam asparagus and onion 2-5 minutes, just until slightly tender. (Add a few tablespoons of extra water, if needed, to maintain steam.)
  4. When water has steamed off, immediately place butter in skillet. Continue cooking until onions and asparagus are lightly browned.
  5. Mix in garlic and continue cooking at 30 seconds.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
