Just one taste and I promise your kids will LOVE Pecan-Buttered Broccoli!
2 large bunches broccoli
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
Cut the broccoli stems into chunky pieces and the tops into individual florets. Place broccoli in a steamer basket over boiling water and steam until tender-crisp - about 5 to 8 minutes. Dump into a serving dish.
Meanwhile, combine butter and pecans in a small skillet and cook, stirring, over medium heat just until the pecans turn golden brown. Remove from heat immediately and pour over steamed broccoli. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
