1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp butter

1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1” lengths

1½ teaspoon balsamic reduction

 

 

Place olive oil and butter in a heavy saute pan and turn heat to medium-low.

Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent and beginning to caramelize, about 30 minutes.

Add tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid from tomatoes has evaporated, about 30 minutes.

Add asparagus, turn heat up to medium-high and cook until all liquid from asparagus has evaporated, 10-15 minutes.

Make a well in the center of the pan and add balsamic reduction. Stir to deglaze the pan.
