A quick and easy side dish that pairs perfectly with your holiday dinner or date night steak. Simply seasoned aspargus that is steamed in the Instant Pot with lemon to give this dish a Springtime flair. A great low-carb or keto side dish.
Trim the ends of one pound of medium-sized asparagus, and place in a pan. These can aslo be placed in foil with the top of the packet open. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, and place butter on top of asaragus.
Cut the lemon in half. Squeeze several lemon drops on the asparagus. Cut a few slices of lemon and add on top of the asparagus.
Add one cup of water to the Instant Pot and place the PIP inside. Seal the Instant Pot and cook on high pressure for four minutes, and follow with a natural release for two minutes. See above in post for timing recommendations for different sized asparagus spears.
Serve immediately, or keep in an airtight container for up to one week.
