I don't usually talk about one ingredient like this. But, Joe (my dad) made me some really good broccoli and I needed to share this with you.
I've always simply steamed broccoli in a steamer basket. Joe boils his with some salt in the water. There are some people who like their broccoli crisp, even when cooked. I prefer mine a little soft, still green and not mushy.
Here's what you need to do:
Cut your broccoli up into florets, discarding the tough bottom stems.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
Add broccoli and cook for about 8 minutes, or until your fork goes through the stems.
