Today Recipes | Easy Sauteed Broccoli Recipe – I just prepared this broccoli to serve with my Shepard’s Pie, which hasn’t been accepted on this site yet. I paired this with my Pie because the sweet & spicy flavor really went well with it. My Pie has ketchup and mustard in the chicken mix, which has a slightly sweet & spicy flavor itself. This broccoli was fantastic to ME, yet the pre-teen daughters did NOT approve, guess they didn’t appreciate the sweet they said. Enjoy!

Easy Sauteed Broccoli Recipe


Preparation time                   Cook time

10 Minutes                             15 Minutes


  • 1 medium head broccoli
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 ½ tablespoons thinly sliced garlic cloves
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • ½ teaspoon finely grated orange peel


  1. Rinse broccoli. Cut off thick stem where it meets slender stalks, and reserve. With sharp paring knife separate stalks into florets, leaving stems about 1 1/2 inches long on each. Cut pieces in two lengthwise and lay flat-side down. Cut each piece lengthwise in two and repeat until you have 3-inch-long carved floret and stem pieces of approximately equal thickness (about 1/2-inch) top to bottom. Peel tough skin from stems, and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch medallions. There should be 12 ounces of broccoli, about 7 cups. Set aside.
  2. Toast sesame seeds in large nonstick skillet over low heat until golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer to small bowl, and set aside.
  3. Place olive oil and garlic in skillet over low heat. Toast garlic, stirring frequently, until garlic is deep golden brown, about 6 minutes. Add pepper flakes to hot oil, and stir. Transfer to small bowl, and set aside. Toss broccoli, salt and 1/4 cup water in same skillet, cover and set over high heat. Cook until broccoli is tender, shaking pan and stirring once, 4 minutes. Uncover skillet (water should be gone), and toss. Stir in garlic and oil, oyster sauce and orange peel. Transfer to warm serving platter, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
