Great recipe! This so easy to prepare and yet so good. The lemon and garlic paired together really make this broccoli side dish stand out. It's delicious all by itself and makes a great side dish. Before serving I topped it with a little lemon zest. YUM!
I broke my broccoli into smaller florets mine were done in just under ten minutes. I used homemade roasted garlic in this recipe. To make the roasted garlic easier to use I just smushed it with the back of a spoon into a paste then mashed it into the butter before adding the butter to the skillet then the broccoli (I skipped the browned garlic step). I did add just a touch of crushed red pepper when I added the fresh ground black pepper. This was delicious. My one issue with this recipe is there wasn't enough for bigger servings we all wanted more. Next time I'd double the recipe in the beginning.
This is sooooooo gooooood. I threw some nuts (hazel and pecan) in for extra flavour as I used this for a mine course but honestly I thought that the nuts dragged it down and that it would have been tastier without them. Definitely the way I will be doing broccoli as a side dish in the future.
I tried this tonight as a side to my tenderloin. It was tasty! It's best straight from the pan to the plate to your mouth so make it your last item removed from the stove. I gave it 5 stars because overall the recipe title says it all- it's easy to prepare lemony and garlicy. Edited: after making this recipe multiple times (we LOVE broccoli!) I now steam my broccoli in a steamer basket instead of cooking it in a pan. (I didn't like that the broccoli turned brown). I pour my lemon juice over the broccoli and leave it to steam. When finished I place the steamed broccoli in a glass pyrex bowl and squeeze 1/2 fresh lemon over it pour the melted butter & slightly browned garlic directly in the bowl cover shake and serve. DELICIOUS!
I thought the flavor was good but the recipe didn't call for nearly enough liquid to steam on the time scales described. After only a short time the liquid was gone and some of the broccoli was burnt. I recommend a steamer basket with more water.
I cut the recipe in half and used frozen broccoli and minced garlic from a jar. Good flavor; more lemony than garlicky. Tasted good but the browning of the broccoli was a bit of a turn off. I haven t seen brown broccoli but the flavor was there. I will try steaming with an actual steamer next time and just add the lemon juice during the second step. I added grated parmesan at the end. I rated 4 stars only because of the brown broccoli being a bit off-putting.
Really good!! BRIGHT GREEN broccoli has antioxidants in the green color at their peak and 10-15 minutes is too long. I cooked it for about 4 minutes cut in smaller pieces so the stems were tender crisp.
I am giving this a 5 for flavor. It was very tasty! I was trying to copy the broccoli served on the plates at restaurants. This came pretty close. The only thing I changed was cutting the black pepper in half. I also only needed to cook the butter garlic sauce for 4 minutes and the garlic was golden browned. I weighed the 1 lb of broccoli out and it came to 7 3/4 cup of fresh brocoli florets. I put them in a pan with 3" sides to steam. I felt the steaming method with so little water was literally dry steaming. For that reason the larger pieces stay a bright green but the smaller ones get a little browned. I might tinker with that a bit next time. I would also like to see if a lighter sat fat version of butter will work like butter with olive oil or canola oil blend. As is though I ate 2 servings and had to stop myself! As it cooks down a little this will only yield about 2 good sized servings. Thanks!
