Info
This recipe from Weber's Charcoal Grilling was made to accompany some SMOKE-ROASTED LEG OF LAMB. This was 1 of 2 sides I was making on the grill in addition to the lamb and this recipe appealed to me on several levels. First it was a simply prep with only one ingredient and second it could be made ahead and served at room temperature. The one ingredient was balsamic vinegar which was reduced to 50 percent of it's initial volume. The asparagus was brushed with the reduction prior to going on the grill. The asparagus was direct grilled at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes until it began to char. Though a simple recipe the results had wonderful flavor. Me I don't eat asparagus unless they are grilled. I enjoyed these and my guest absolutely loved them too.
