Reviews for Broccoli Side Dish
"Loved it, but my 6 year old didn't like it."
"I've made this many times. Even my picky youngest loves it. Great quick and easy side dish."
"This was a great combo! Even my daughter enjoyed it!"
"This turned out awesome! I added in a small can of yellow corn and my family ate it up! There was not any left."
"It was really good, but I think I'll double the sauce next time cuz it didn't coat all the broccoli"
"I made this tonight as a side to our Peanutty Asian Wraps. It is a delicious, easy side to a meal! I did mine on the stove top. I added a few tablespoons of water to "steam" the broccoli first. After it was almost done I drained the water off and added the sauce, tossing to coat. It was delicious and my 7 year old son loved it!!"
"Excellent new side dish. To the sauce, I added a squirt of Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce, just because we like it."
"Was looking for a new way to prepare broccoli and this recipe was awesome. Will definitely make again."
"Delicious! My family LOVED it!! Instead of minced garlic, I used garlic powder."
"eh i liked it, but it just felt like i was eating broccoli and garlic too garlicy for me."
"Delicious! Will make again."
"What a great quick recipe!"
"Great way to prepare broccoli. I usually just cook broccoli and put butter on it, this is a new change of pace that is simple with great taste. Went over very well. Instead of microwaving it, I instead steam cooked it and it turned out just fine."
"Great! My husband said it tasted just like a Chinese restaurant."
"Very good. I placed all the 'sauce' ingredients in a skillet, heated till the butter was melted, added the broccoli, covered, and cooked (steamed), stirring occasionally, till the broccoli was crisp tender. At the last I uncovered the skillet, turned up the heat and evaporated the little liquid that was in the skillet. The florets, as they steamed in the sauce, absorbed all the flavor, more so than if they had just been tossed, I think. Delish!"
"Have made this several time. Love it and have gotten quite a few compliments."
"Definitely needs to be tossed to coat the broccoli with the sauce mixture after cooking to get the full flavor. Very tasty and 3-4 minutes is a great recommended microwave time -- usually you get mush but this was nice and crunchy!"
"I've already made this a few times...it really dresses up plain broccoli!"
