Making sure that all sides and asparagus are being cooked. Add the butter. Continue to stir and cook. The asparagus will start to turn a deeper green and soften and the garlic with start to brown. Once it gets to that point grab one out and taste it. See if it is how you like them cooked. Soft but still have a crunch is how i like them! Serve immediately.
