Leary of cooking broccoli? With the multiple health benefits of broccoli, it’s one vegetable you should try to include in your healthy diet. There are so many ways to cook broccoli – from air fryer broccoli to roasted garlic broccoli to whole roasted broccoli to marinated broccoli. Besides being delicious, one thing most broccoli recipes have in common is that they are simple to cook. This pan-fried garlic pepper broccoli recipe is no exception.

Broccoli florets (you can throw some broccoli stems in there, too, if desired) are browned in a little olive oil, then steamed with a little water and garlic pepper seasoning until crisp-tender (or your desired doneness). 

Serve this pan-fried broccoli recipe as a side dish with chicken, beef, pork, lamb or seafood. This is a great recipe for meal prep, too.

Recipe Notes

  • For even more garlic flavor, add a clove or two of chopped garlic when you add the water. (Can you ever have too much garlic?)

  • You could use avocado oil or your favorite cooking oil instead of olive oil.

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli in a single layer and cook, undisturbed, for about 2 minutes or until they are beginning to lightly brown. Stir and continue to cook about 2 more minutes.
  2. Add the water, garlic pepper seasoning blend and sea salt, to taste. Cover and cook about 2 minutes. Uncover and cook until desired doneness.
