Drunken Grilled Asparagus

I created this when I had a leftover open bottle of Burgundy and my friend brought me 10 pounds of fresh organic asparagus. You can probably use any wine you like. Also, the cooking time will vary depending on how hot your grill is and your desired doneness.


  • 1 cup Burgundy wine
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon prepared brown mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed

Step by step

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together Burgundy wine, olive oil, brown mustard, garlic powder, black pepper and salt.
  2. Place asparagus in a large glass bowl, and cover with the Burgundy wine mixture. Cover bowl, and marinate asparagus in the refrigerator at least 2 hours, turning occasionally.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate.
  4. Grill asparagus 10 minutes, or to desired tenderness.
