"I made this broccoli tonight and my son loved it! I doubled the sauce, and like some of the other reviewers, I added some sesame oil too. I didn't use the microwave for this; instead I steamed the broccoli slightly first, and then simmered it in the sauce on the stovetop. Would have liked the sauce to be a bit thicker, but all in all, this is a good change of pace from your usual steamed broccoli!"

"I made this tonight and everyone loved it. After reading the reviews, I too added sesame oil and crushed red pepper flakes. Will make this again and again!"

"This recipe is easy and delicious! I halved the amount of sugar, and, as suggested, added 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil and 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha. I microwaved it until crisp tender using the sauce as the steaming liquid. I will add this side dish to my keeper list!"

"This is one AWESOME broccoli recipe! Tasted just like what you get in the Chinese restaurants!! I added about 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil to suit our tastes ..... this has become my new "go to" VEGETABLE recipe. I've made it using green beans, instead of broccoli as well as asparagus. The sauce is so versatile, I even tried it on a piece of grilled pork chop that I was eating. It was fantastic! I just may have to take a bath in the stuff!!"

"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!!"
