Prepare the asparagus by washing them and trimming 1-2 inches off the bottom, depending on how tough the bottoms are.
Heat butter or olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
When butter is melted, add garlic and give it a quick stir to combine.
Add the prepared asparagus. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender (5-9 minutes depending on how big the spears are).
Add salt and pepper to taste and serve right away.
