Followed the instructions and my Steamed Broccoli was a success. I finished it off with black pepper and salted margarine. Will definitely use this recipe again.
Perfect! 5 minutes steaming was just right.
Timing was perfect!!Betty
Rinsing was perfect! Thank you!
I do not on a regular steaming basket so I use the tupperware bowl with a steamer basket a lid preheated my water for 5 minutes in the microwave and then did the 6 minute steaming came out perfect thank you thank you
Hi, VW! Glad this worked for you. I’m going to get all mom-style here and remind you (and all our dear readers) to check that any plastic container you put in the microwave is microwave-safe. Thanks for cooking with us!
Started making this, following the instructions…I forgot to set the timer but it turned out great!! I guess cooking by the eye works out pretty well
Steamed broccoli and mayonnaise is delicious. I steamed it with oil, black pepper, paprika, onion, coriander, and a dash of salt.
This is the truth about perfect steamed broccoli. Preach
Top it with Velveeta Cheese & Black Pepper
Top it with toasted pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds or almonds
Thanks for tip about pepper and rice vinegar. Haven’t tried it yet but would never have thought of those things with broccoli. Like the rice vinegar with cauliflower. As a help with your managing editor I’m wondering if the people who are complaining about things being too soggy at 5 minutes it depends on how deep their pot is with the water from the top of the steamer dish. Maybe there’s is very close. Not trying to get too into the weeds here regarding physics. Which I made and A on anyway.
It was perfect for me! With that being said I enjoy my Broccoli soft with no crunch. It wasn’t “too soggy” as others have said. Everyone has their own preference in texture so good job on helping me on figure out the perfect broccoli for me.
5 minutes was way to long for me. Brocolli was overcooked, and crumbled to the touch.
Perfect just like you wrote it! Thank you
Wonderful. Easy to remember recipe and so quick to get it ready to serve.
Tried today, didn’t work for me. 5 minutes is way too long, should have done 2 minutes. It was soggy..
came out great
Loved it. Perfect time.
Cooked perfectly in 5 min. I used fresh butter and grinder pepper and the family loved it
Delicious, we like Italian dressing on it too
