Sugared Asparagus


Delicious, super easy and a nice change from the more savory asparagus dishes. A classic to be.
Serves 4-6 

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons brown sugar
Melt together in large fry pan over medium high heat until dissolved. 
2 pounds / 1 kg asparagus (cut in 2-inch / 5 cm pieces)
add and saute 2 minutes.
1/2 cup / 125 ml chicken or vegetable broth
Stir in, bring to boil, cover, and simmer until just tender, 6 – 8 minutes. Remove asparagus to a warm dish. Return liquid to a boil and simmer uncovered until sauce is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Pour over asparagus, sprinkle with 1-2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (optional) and serve.
