Oxmoor House JUNE 2006

  • Yield: 8 servings
  • Cook time: 14 Minutes
  • Prep time: 19 Minutes


  • 3 pounds broccoli, cut into large florets
  • 1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup minced shallot
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into 1/2
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


Place broccoli florets in a steamer basket over boiling water, and cook 7 minutes or until crisp-tender.

Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, bring vinegar and shallots to a boil; reduce heat, simmer 7 minutes or until vinegar is almost absorbed. Remove from heat; add butter, a few pieces at a time, stirring constantly with a wire whisk until butter melts and sauce thickens. Stir in parsley, salt, and pepper. Toss with steamed broccoli.

Fix it Faster: Buy broccoli crowns to save a step in the kitchen.
