Asparagus and Potatoes Sautéed in Butter and Soy Sauce

Crispy potatoes and asparagus sautéed in butter and soy sauce. The key is the minced onion.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Asparagus
4 sticks
Potatoes
2 large
Onion
1/4
Olive oil
1/2 tablespoon
Butter
1 tablespoon
Soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon
Coarsely ground black pepper
a little

Steps

1. Break off the tough stalk ends of the asparagus. Slice the remaining top portion diagonally into 5 mm pieces. Peel the tough fiber from the stalk ends and cut the same way.
2. Peel the potatoes and cut into 5mm matchsticks. Submerge in water for 5 minutes, then dry completely.
3. Mince the onion.
4. Put olive oil in a pan and heat, add the potatoes and onion, and fry thoroughly (about 7-8 minutes).
5. Once the potatoes become translucent and can be pierced easily with a chopstick, add the asparagus and butter. Sauté for 3 minutes.
6. Swirl in the soy sauce from the edges of the pan and mix all together.
7. Arrange on a plate, sprinkle with a little black pepper. Bon appétit!

Story Behind this Recipe

I received a lot of Hokkaido-grown asparagus, so I fried them together with Hokkaido potatoes! Inspired by the taste of buttered potatoes, I came up with the idea to make a simple butter and soy sauce sauté.
