I learned how to cook beef and broccoli recipe in a variety of ways. We have come a long way since the old days of cooking broccoli. Back then broccoli was considered a health remedy; it had to be eaten for the nutritional benefits. Broccoli was boiled and a little salt and pepper was added so we could choke it down. Occasionally we might add a little of that unhealthy butter for flavor if we were lucky!
Ideally broccoli should be cooked to a tender crisp stage. In this state it retains a great appearance and flavor but also maximum vitamins and minerals. If you purchase locally grown broccoli, it will cook faster than if purchased from supermarkets which have been shipped in. Steaming is the best way to cook broccoli to retain flavor and vitamins. Place it in a basket or colander and set in a pot containing just enough boiling water to reach the bottom of basket. Cover pan with lid and steam for about 7 minutes. At this stage broccoli can be added to meats to make many delicious dishes as I have learned how to make the beef and broccoli recipe below.
