I'm on a broccoli kick right now, so decided to try this recipe out. The steaming time was perfect....so the broccoli was at the right texture. I just didn't care for the flavor...I think I would prefer it with just a bit of soy with the broccoli and garlic. Or maybe less black bean sauce flavor. Maybe a personal preference, so if you love black bean sauce I highly recommend it.
