Cast Iron Skillet in the Oven
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place your oven rack on the lowest setting and put your skillet while it preheats.

  2. When the oven comes to temp, use an oven mitt to remove the skillet and lightly mist with olive oil.

  3. Place your asparagus in the skillet, mist with olive oil, and sprinkle with the steak seasoning.

  4. Roast for 5 minutes, flip, and cook for another 3-5 minutes.

  2. Lightly mist the sheet pan with olive oil.

  3. Place your asparagus on the pan, mist with olive oil, and sprinkle with the steak seasoning.

  4. Roast for 6 minutes, flip, and cook for another 4-7 minutes.

Cast Iron in the Toaster Oven
  1. If your toaster oven has settings for the rack (mine has two), put yours on the lowest setting and put your skillet into preheat to 450 degrees.

  2. When the oven comes to temp, use an oven mitt to remove the skillet and lightly mist with olive oil.

  3. Place your asparagus in the skillet, mist with olive oil, and sprinkle with the steak seasoning.

  4. Roast for 10 minutes, flip, and cook for another 3-5 minutes.

Recipe Notes

If using cast iron, make sure it is in the oven/toaster oven while it preheats. Never put food on a cold cast iron skillet.

 

If using cast iron, you need to add a "fat" to the pan once it is hot and before the food is added. For this recipe, that just means a quick spritz of olive oil from the Misto.

 

If roasting in the oven set your rack to the lowest setting possible.

 

Bend your asparagus in half and apply pressure. Where it breaks is the natural point of the stalk where you should remove the woody ends. You can snap a few stalks at a time, but I prefer to just use a knife and cut a bunch at once.
