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

How to make

  1. STEP 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. STEP 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. STEP 3

    Stir browned butter mixture into broccoli. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seed, if desired.

Tip #1

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.
