Stir-Fried Broccoli With Mustard Glaze

broccoli with mustard glaze

I have loved this recipe for a long time. It’s quick and easy, using ingredients I typically have on hand. By searing the broccoli on high heat and then quick steaming it, the veggies never get mushy or lose their nutrients to a pot of water. This is a perfect side to a dinner of pork chops and rice or chicken pot pie or a plate of sweet potato hash and cornbread.
