Stir Fried Asparagus with Bacon

asparagus and bacon stir-fry recipe

This was a beautiful and tasty dish.  Asparagus goes really well with bacon.  I really liked the smoky flavor the bacon added to the asparagus.  It’s a simple stir-fry that makes a great side dish or snack.

We ate this with a lamb steak and mashed red potatoes.  The next day I ate the leftover asparagus and bacon stir-fry by itself for lunch and it was very satisfying.

  • Stir fry the bacon in a skillet or saute pan until most of the fat is rendered and add the asparagus and stir fry until the asparagus is al dente. Salt and pepper to taste

Notes

A pound of asparagus is about 1 bunch of medium size spears. Around 20-25 spears *Minced garlic really kicks this up *You can also try it with lemon pepper seasoning. That's really good as well.
