Sautéed Broccolini

sauteed broccolini

Most recipes for sautéed broccolini will tell you to blanch the broccolini first (cook briefly in salted water, then quickly rinse in cold water or dip in ice water). But I like to sauté the broccolini first, until browned and crisp, then add a bit of water to the hot pan, cover and briefly steam, just until the stems are crisp-tender.

Yield: 4
  • 2 bunches fresh broccolini
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  1. Heat a very large, 14-inch skillet over medium-high heat until very hot, about 3 minutes. Add the butter and swirl to coat. Add the broccolini, the salt and pepper. Sauté 5-10 minutes, stirring often, until the broccolini has absorbed all the butter and parts of the broccolini are beginning to brown.
  2. Add ¼ cup water to the bottom of the skillet. Cover and steam for about 2 minutes, until the stems are crisp-tender.
