Makes 4 servings
Hands-on time: 10 minutes
Total preparation time: 16 minutes
1 large head broccoli
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Sesame seeds for garnish, optional
Cut the broccoli into florets, reserving stems for another use. Combine the broccoli with the butter, soy sauce, and 1/4-inch water in a skillet just large enough to hold the broccoli in one layer. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 3 minutes.
Remove the cover and simmer 1 to 2 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir until all florets are nicely coated with the butter mixture and serve. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
