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.
