From My Kitchen: Balsamic Brown Butter Asparagus

It's still asparagus season, and here's my new favorite way to serve up its green goodness. This is a super simple sauce that is a little bit tangy, a little bit salty and just plain buttery delicious on asparagus. It would be great on roasted green beans or even chicken or pork, too.

Here's the recipe.

Balsamic Brown Butter Asparagus
1 lb. asparagus
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt & pepper
2 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoons soy sauce (reduced sodium)
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

Wash and trim asparagus. Toss the asparagus with olive oil and a little salt and pepper. Either roast or grill until crisp-tender, 7-9 minutes.

Just before asparagus is done, melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook for 3 minutes, shaking pan occasionally, until butter is golden brown. Watch carefully so it doesn't burn. Remove from heat and stir in soy sauce and balsamic vinegar.

Drizzle sauce over cooked asparagus and serve to a round of applause.
