This steamed broccoli recipe is so simple to do. Broccoli tastes great if it is not over cooked.
Wash and cut the broccoli into florets, you can also peel the stems and chop them into smaller pieces or use them in a salad.
Using a skillet, just large enough to hold the florets, add 1/4 inch of water and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat, cover with a lid, and simmer for 3 minutes.
Remove the cover and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated, add the butter and cook 1-3 minutes longer.
Simmer only until the broccoli is cooked but still firm.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
