  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 bunches fresh broccolini
  • 1/2 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • 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.
  • Add 1/4 cup water to the bottom of the skillet. Cover and steam for about 2 minutes, until the stems are tender-crisp. Serve immediately.
