This is a fried broccoli side dish that is so good.. This is more of a technique than a recipe. Very easy, and my kids love it.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 bunch fresh broccoli, trimmed and cut into spears
  • 14 cup vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add the oil.
  2. Add the broccoli and stir well to coat with the oil. Season to taste with s/p.
  3. Fry until the broccoli turns brown from the sugars caramelizing. Just leave it alone until it starts to brown on the bottom before turning it.
  4. The result is crispy, sweet, almost candy-like.
  5. No, it's not burnt - it's CARAMELIZED. LOL.

Easy and so delicious. I loved the golden crunch on the broccoli which brought out all the flavor. Thanks Steve!
