  • Summary

    This is an example of a short braise, where the cooking liquid is not reduced to make a sauce. Many recipes call for broccoli rabe to be blanched and then sauteed to remove some of its bitterness, but if you prefer its natural taste, braising is a better option.

    Ingredients

    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
    • 3 medium garlic cloves, crushed and peeled
    • 1 bunch (1 1/4 pounds) broccoli rabe, trimmed and cut crosswise into 3-inch pieces
    • 2 teaspoons julienned lemon zest, plus fresh lemon juice for serving
    • Coarse salt
    • Freshly ground pepper
    • 1 cup homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken stock
