Make perfect sautéed broccoli every time with this one-pan sautéed broccoli recipe that requires just 4 ingredients and 15 minutes! The key lies in the two-part cooking process that starts with steaming the broccoli in the pan, and ends with sautéing the broccoli in oil with sliced garlic.
Add ½ cup water to a large sauté pan, cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Add broccoli, cover and steam until nearly crisp-tender, 3 minutes. Uncover and continue to cook until water is evaporated.
Add oil and garlic to skillet, decrease heat to medium-high and cook until broccoli is crisp-tender and garlic is starting to brown, 3–4 minutes. Stir in sesame seeds and season with salt and black pepper (and red pepper flakes if you prefer); cook 1 minute.
Season with additional salt to taste and serve immediately.
Store broccoli in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
