1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

2 tablespoons coarsely chopped shallots or onion

2 teaspoons chopped garlic

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon olive oil

7 cups broccoli florets

1 medium (1 cup) red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

3 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons toasted sesame seed, if desired


Melt butter in 2-quart heavy saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly and watching closely, 4-6 minutes or until butter just starts to turn golden brown. (Butter will get foamy and bubble.) Remove from heat; stir in shallots, garlic and vinegar. Set aside. 

Place all remaining ingredients except water and sesame seed in 12-inch deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes. Add water; reduce heat to medium. Cover; continue cooking 4-6 minutes or until broccoli is crisply tender. Remove from heat. 

Stir browned butter mixture into broccoli. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seed, if desired.
