Grilled Broccoli

The best part of this broccoli is the char is receives from the grill- the dark brown crispy edges of grilled broccoli will make you re-think the vegetable all together. The preparation and seasonings are simple so you don't miss out on the true broccoli flavor.

Be patient here, they need to spend 8-10 minutes of the gril to become tender; don't be afraid of charred marks as they are full of flavor. Dark brown is not burnt.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
