Directions:
Blanche the asparagus in salted rapidly boiling water for 1 minute and then shock them in an ice bath to stop the cooking. Dry thoroughly.
Pre-heat olive oil and butter in large skillet.
Once heated, spread salt and pepper evenly across bottom of skillet.
Rinse asparagus stalks and chop off the ends.
Add asparagus to the hot skillet. Keep covered while cooking, except when stirring. This will allow the stalks to soften on the inside. Stir every couple minutes to blend the asparagus with the other ingredients, and because the exterior of the stalks will brown quickly.

Personal Notes:
This is my all time favorite asparagus recipe. I never was an asparagus lover until I had this at a restaurant. It was so good. I asked to chef how it was prepared and this was what he told me.
