Great and quick recipe that my family enjoyed!Read More
I have been making this recipe for years. It's DELICIOUS as is! Don't forget the pinch of crushed red pepper!Read More
From one glance I could tell that this was a suspicious recipe.
Full review in case it is truncated: https://wordwelter.tumblr.com/post/643601824939737088/awful-broccoli-recipe
First, it allegedly has 1,118 ratings at time of writing but only 7 reviews. There's no space to rate or review without an account, so how can all of those even be real?
Second, they are all 5 stars. No real recipe I've ever seen has had such a unanimous response with even a tenth of the reviews.
Third, it says it takes 20 minutes of prep work. To slice 3 cloves of garlic and two heads of broccoli a whole one time? It took me maybe 5 minutes in total, but I'm willing to forgive only this point, because recipes tend to understate prep time.
Fourth, you are frying and then steaming broccoli. Broccoli is delicious any way you make it except steaming. Steaming completely removes any and all flavor this might've had from "caramelizing" in olive oil.
Fifth, the name. Don't listen to the blurb, this is not caramelized by any definition of the word, but it sounds a whole lot better than "fried and then steamed", because anyone can tell that that's not going to be good.
Sixth, there is only one step, Step 1, and it is 8 steps. Pet peeve, and this makes it harder to read and tell that that the recipe stinks.
Seventh, there is no way for the garlic flavor to go anywhere. You just drop the garlic onto the broccoli, but it's not soaking the broccoli? Maybe if you had put it in the steaming step it'd be fine but you're just toasting it as it is, completely separate.
After following the instructions to a T, I can say I was correct on every account. Yet, it still had the gall to surprise me with just how bland and mushy it ended up being. Also lemon juice made it much much worse, and I like both broccoli and lemon juice.
Dousing it in garlic powder had no effect, nor did black pepper. The only thing that made it palatable was a generous shaking of Cajun seasoning, which is cheating because that makes anything taste good.
This was fantastic!Read More
This turned out really good! I didn’t have any lemons so I didn’t use any and it was great.Read More
pleasantly surprised by the extraordinary deliciousness of this simple method for preparing broccoli. THANK YOURead More
I Just made it before my broccoli went bad. Smells good and taste good... I'll try this recipe with cauliflower? Someone asked about calories. Most of the calories are in the oil. So ease up on the oil if your worried about calories, that's what I did!Read More
Chef Amanda Cohen turns broccoli into Korean-inspired crack at Dirt Candy, on the LES. Go forth and experience it!! (She makes 'em into hot dogs, too...)Read More
