How to make it

  • Preparation:
  • Drain the broccoli well and cook them until half done in lightly salted boiling water (3-5 minutes from when the water resumes boiling after you add them to the pot).
  • Drain them well, and squeeze them to force out the bitter juices.
  • Sauté the garlic in the oil, and when it is golden, add the broccoli. Cook over a brisk flame, stirring constantly, for about 10 minutes. Season with the hot pepper, if you are using it, half way through the cooking, and the anchovies, if you are using them, at the end.
  • Before serving check seasoning.

    To me the bitter juices are what attract me to the dish.
    Your Broccoli Rapa Strascinati is wonderful Joymarie.

    Sounds yummy, I love adding anchovies to my dishes, they add a nice salty flavor and have people guessing what the secret ingredient is.
