Tonight, I get a night off from cooking! Sort of. My boyfriend and his roommates are firing up the grill and doing the hard part, so all I have to do is make various marinades for the food. We had some asparagus lying around so I decided to just make a simple marinade.
1 bunch of asparagus
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic (about 2 large garlic cloves)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon chopped onion flakes
Salt and pepper, to taste
Place the asparagus on a large piece of tin foil. You will make a little packet out of the tin foil.
Fold up each side of the tin foil, twisting the ends so that they stay together.
Pour the marinade over the asparagus.
for not letting my asparagus get soggy. It was great to only have to do the prep work on a dish… a girl could get used to this!
- 1 bunch of asparagus
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic (about 2 large garlic cloves)
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon chopped onion flakes
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Combine all the ingredients not including the asparagus. Mix well.
- Prepare the asparagus. Remove the rough bottoms of the stems. Asparagus tends to snap where the tougher part ends, or you can just cut the asparagus where you think it needs to be trimmed.
- Place the asparagus on a large piece of tin foil. You will make a little packet out of the tin foil.
- Fold up each side of the tin foil, twisting the ends so that they stay together.
- Pour the marinade over the asparagus.
- Close the foil and marinate for at least one hour. You can either remove the asparagus from the foil and place the asparagus right on the grill, cooking for 6-8 minutes, turning carefully half way through, or you can put the asparagus on the grill in the foil, cooking for about 10 minutes. Either way, grill until the asparagus is tender but still has a crunch to it.
