Spicy Balsamic Broccoli with Chicken Sausage Monday, June 24, 2013, 06:41 PM
I again tried to make a balsamic broccoli (last time) concoction. I made a sauce with the base being fat free balsamic dressing. I used the Trader Joes one since it is not chemicals. It is basically different vinegars and some other stuff but all pretty basic.
I used the following ingredients. However, when it was all cooking, even as it cooked down, there was not enough liquid. I had to add more dressing (1/4 cup).
I mixed it all and let it sit for 2 hours. At the end, I added 1 tsp crushed red pepper (I would have added it sooner, but I didn't think of it). And then, as I note above, 1/4 cup additional dressing while it cooked.
The mustard was there to help make the emulsion.
I added the sausage and pepper, then the steamed broccoli once it was cooking. I then added the sauce, and a bit later, the extra dressing.
Overall, this was really good and I think it was closer to what I have been looking for. I would do it again pretty much the same way except I'd add more dressing (and more liquid all together). Plus, probably some more corn starch to match the additional liquid. Maybe an additional red pepper and/or some cherry peppers.
