1 (16 ounce) package
frozen broccoli, thawed
crushed red pepper flakes
salt, to taste
The only thing I did differently was use fresh broccoli and cooked it using a little bit of leftover bacon drippings. AMAZING
I would cut down to 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes next time, but we don't like food very spicy. This is an interesting dish and I would recommend it for a real change when entertaining but there is nothing like steamed broccoli with a little butter for family meals.
In deference to Hubs' sensitive innards, I had to skip the crushed red pepper flakes and used some fresh ground black pepper instead. I used fresh broccoli, added a little clarified butter along with the olive oil and some minced garlic right at the end of cooking so it wouldn't burn. Some of the best broccoli we 've ever had.
This was really good and couldn't be easier, and probably the only way I will prepare frozen broccoli from now on...I added 2 cloves of chopped garlic to the pan and also sprinkled with parm cheese before serving. Loved that I was able to get normally mushy frozen broccoli crispy and yummy, thank you!
I was looking for something simple yet tasty for broccoli and came across this recipe. I did not use salt but sprayed "I can't believe it's not butter." Tasted like I should have made more - really delicious.
This is good! I ate this at the Franciscan on Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco and it's a great spin on cooking broccoli. When I made it at home I just used olive oil, black pepper, and sea salt. If your going to rate broccoli 1-5 it's a 5.
Very easy and tasty recipe. I unthawed the broccoli and then gently squeezed some of the water out of it. I sauteed 1/2 an onion and 2 sliced garlic cloves in the oil for a couple of minutes, then added the broccoli. I topped my second serving with a little fresh grated parmesan cheese. This recipe is a great way to prepare frozen broccoli. I had intended on not buying any more frozen broccoli because I usually wind up throwing it out whether it's been cooked or has grown old in the freezer. Now that I've found a good way to prepare it, I will buy more.
I do the same thing with frozen green beans and add so chopped garlic! Yum
