Ingredients

1/4 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter
2 tablespoons
coarsely chopped shallots or onion
2 teaspoons
finely chopped fresh garlic
1 tablespoon
balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon
olive oil
7 cups
broccoli florets
1 medium (1 cup)
red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 teaspoon
salt
1/4 teaspoon
pepper
3 tablespoons
water
2 tablespoons
toasted sesame seeds, if desired

Directions

  1. Melt butter in 2-quart heavy saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly and watching closely, 4-6 minutes or until butter just starts to turn golden brown. (Butter will get foamy and bubble. Remove from heat; stir in shallots, garlic and vinegar. Set aside.
  2. Place all remaining ingredients except water and sesame seed in 12-inch deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes. Add water; reduce heat to medium. Cover; continue cooking 4-6 minutes or until broccoli is crisply tender. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir browned butter mixture into broccoli. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seed, if desired.

Recipe Tips

Toasted sesame seeds can be found in the ethnic (Asian) aisle of the supermarket. To toast your own, place seeds in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F, 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned.

I thought for a vegetable dish this one was a bit involved. I didn't think that the recipe had any sort of "nutty" flavor from the browned butter, a product that I have worked with in the past. In the future I would skip this and opt for a simpler stir fry.

This dish was wonderful, very flavorful, my family really enjoyed the taste of the browned butter.

Looks beautiful among all the bland-looking dishes usually served on Thanksgiving, and more important, tastes wonderful too. The butter-and-balsamic combo is knockout!
