Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Made  times

"A new recipe a neighbor gave us. What a hit with my family. Just the right mixture of garlic and cashews with our favorite side dish, broccoli. And, so very easy to make!! If in a pinch, you could probably use frozen broccoli too, but I haven't tried."

  1. Place the broccoli into a large pot with about 1 inch of water in the bottom. Bring to a boil, and cook for 7 minutes, or until tender but still crisp. Drain, and arrange broccoli on a serving platter.
  2. While the broccoli is cooking, melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Mix in the brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, pepper and garlic. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat. Mix in the cashews, and pour the sauce over the broccoli. Serve immediately.

I was really excited about this recipe. The flavor was very good, but 7 minutes was too long to boil the broccoli. I took it out after 5 minutes and it was mushy. Maybe my pieces were too small?...

Yes, yes, yes!!! Incredible hit with my family, including 3 children (11, 12 and 14). They continued to take extra helpings until it was all gone. I added a 1/2 Tbls. cornstarch to the sauce to ...

Very good! I'm glad I used unsalted cashews as the soya sauce adds plenty of saltiness to the dish.

Loved this - what an interesting flavor! This sauce is so delicious the cashews aren't even necessary, but do use them if you can. I wasn't sure I'd like them but I'm glad I gave them a try be...
