- Transfer roast to a cutting board; cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. Using a slotted spoon, transfer onion and apples to a serving bowl.
- Cook the asparagus: Heat olive oil and butter on medium-low heat in pan until melted. Add garlic and cook until soft but not brown. Add chicken stock and asparagus, cover, and steam until asparagus is soft but not mushy, about 8-10 minutes.
