His latest cookbook, “Easy Everyday Favorites.” sold over 52,000 copies, and we have one to share! We reached out to MarkCharles, who shared one of his favorite recipes that can be cooked in the fourth burner pot. This asparagus with ‘hurry up hollandaise’ promises to be in an upcoming cookbook, but we got it first!

Perfect Steamed Asparagus


Snap off the tough ends of the asparagus spears. Add water to The Kuhn Rikon 11 Cup S/S 4th Burner Pot with Basket; the water should not touch the bottom of the insert. Bring the water to a boil and add the asparagus to the steamer basket. Steam, uncovered, for 5 minutes.

Cover and steam for 3 to 5 minutes longer or until tender-crisp, checking occasionally for the desired degree of doneness.

Serve with Hurry-Up Hollandaise.

Hurry-Up Hollandaise


½ Cup low-fat mayonnaise
½ Cup reduced-fat sour cream
1 to 1½ Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/8 Teaspoon paprika


Combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, Dijon mustard and lemon juice in The Kuhn Rikon 11 Cup S/S 4th Burner Pot. Bring just to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer.
Stir in the paprika and serve immediately over asparagus.
