    Question how does Outback do greenbeans & broccoli

    Does anyone know what Outback Steakhouse uses to cook their vegetables in? It's a slightly sweet flavor. I know it's used on the green beans and broccoli.

    Not sure about the broccoli, but for the beans, we asked the waiter, and he came back and told us it was just butter and brown sugar. I've tried to duplicate it at home, but it came out freaky. (I tried melting brown sugar in butter and it was not combining at all). I want to try again, next time just adding the melted butter to the beans, then sprinkling some brown sugar and giving it a toss.. but I have not tried it yet. But anyways, that's what I was told it was.

    Simple Steamed Broccoli

    My son adores steamed broccoli, especially the way they serve it at the Outback Restaurant. He loves it so much he asks for broccoli instead of fries when we eat there!! This is what I came up with that he deemed "perfect". (The sugar is merely to help the water boil, like salt does, without adding a salty flavor to the vegetables. I read that tip on a website when I was learning to use the steamer and have used it ever since.)

    4-6 servings 13 min 5 min prep
    Change to: servings US Metric
    3-4 cups fresh broccoli florets
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1/4 cup butter

    Place the sugar the bottom of your pan, insert steamer basket. Add the enough water to come just below the bottom of the steamer basket. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium.
    Add broccoli to basket and cover with a lid. Steam for 7-8 minutes, depending on your tenderness preference.
    While steaming broccoli, melt butter in the serving bowl in the microwave.
    Add broccoli and stir to coat.
