How to Perfectly Cook Broccoli

I LOVE well cooked broccoli! I have found a way to have it come out perfectly every time. It comes from America's Test Kitchen (which I love! ) and it works great. I have a steamer pan, but if you don't have one, you can use an inexpensive steamer basket that you can set into any pan you have.
Bring about 1 inch of water to a boil in a small pan. Cut the broccoli into small pieces and put into your steamer. Set the steamer basket over the boiling water , cover and cook for exactly 7 minutes - no more- no less!

Remove and you can add a little kosher salt to the broccoli if you like, or toss with freshly grated Parmesan cheese or any other yummy topping you would like. It comes out a beautiful bright green, is tender and perfectly done - no guess work! Yahoo!!!
