I loved this simple, easy recipe. I cooked it about 5 minutes after removing the lid. I used too much water so it didn't evaporate (I always have trouble judging how much to put in the pan) so I just removed the florets with a slotted spoon. I have broccoli all the time and this recipe is a welcome addition to my recipe file!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the broccoli into florets, discarding stems or reserving for another use.
  2. Combine the florets with butter, soy sauce and 1/4 inch water in a skillet large enough to hold the florets in a single layer.
  3. Bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes.
  5. Remove cover and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated, 1 -3 minutes longer.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Stir florets to coat with sauce and serve.
