Mario Batali's Neapolitan-Style Broccoli
This is a great holiday side dish. The hot red pepper flakes are an update to the usual boring steamed broccoli.
Combine the oil and the onions in a large, heavy-bottomed pot, and cook
over medium heat until the onions are softened but not browned. Add the
garlic and cook for 1 minute longer. Add the broccoli, and stir to coat it
with the onion mixture. Cook over high heat for 8 minutes, stirring so
that the mixture does not scorch. If it gets too hot, add cool water, 2 to
3 tablespoons at a time, to slow it down.
When the broccoli is tender, add the red pepper flakes, season with salt
and black pepper, and stir well. Serve hot or at room temperature.
