Balsamic Asparagus with Bacon

Per serving you will need:
-12 spears of asparagus
-1/2 small white onion, sliced
-2 strips of bacon
-1 tsp balsamic vinegar, more as desired

Start by frying your bacon in a skillet, giving it a minute or two head start before adding in the onion.  Let those two cook, turning the bacon as needed.  Once the bacon is just starting to get done, add in the asparagus.  Remove the bacon when it is just at or below crispy.

Add the balsamic and mix the veggies around to coat.   Add a little water and pop a lid on the pan to let the veggies steam.  While steaming, cut the bacon into pieces.

Steam until the asparagus is at your desired level of doneness and then remove the lid and add the bacon back in.  Give it all a good stir and let it cook a minute or so more.

This would pair well with burgers or steak, and probably a lot of other dishes.  When I was eating it, I was definitely thinking steak.

But something like salmon would be tasty with this as well if you did not want to do beef and bacon...although I cannot imagine why you would not!

Happy crafting! Pin It Now!
