This quick and easy carrot side dish recipe has only four ingredients and is perfect for busy weeknights.
4 large carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch sticks
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 teaspoon sugar
How to Make It
Place the carrots in a large skillet. Dot with the butter and sprinkle with the sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Add enough cold water to come halfway up the sides of the carrots. Simmer, partially covered, until the carrots are tender and the liquid has reduced to a glaze, about 20 minutes. (If the carrots are done before this point, transfer them to a bowl, increase heat to high, and cook the liquid, uncovered, until reduced. Return the carrots to the pan and toss.)
