I mixed up the sauce ingredients per the recipe I printed out from the Glad website, cut the tough bottoms from my asparagus, sealed the bag and popped it in the microwave. In 5 minutes, I had a pound of asparagus with a lemon-butter dijon sauce!
Though I approached this product with some skepticism, I have to admit, I was really impressed. The bags have simple cooking guidelines printed on the outside and are structured with a flat bottom so they are easy to load with whatever ingredients you decide to cook. The bags maintained their structure during cooking (not getting soft or having melted spots). The finished veggies were easy to pour right out of the bag and onto a serving dish. But of course, the proof is in the tasting, and...the asparagus was perfectly cooked, with spears that were tender and tips that still held together. A success!! I have actually headed back to the website to try out some of the other recipes featured by their steamy chefs (honestly, the hot chefs had nothing to do with it!) , using the other sample bags they sent me.
