My late, great, uncle Ross taught me a handy trick for making sure garlic doesn’t burn. Right when it’s getting some color, you can add pretty much any liquid and it will stop the cooking short! It could be chicken broth, wine, or even water… When I began cooking for myself, I remembered that he started a delicious broccoli and pasta dish with onions and garlic to show me this secret. I seldom had chicken broth or wine, but I always had beer! Hence, the birth of this dish! I love the slight bitter tang it brings to the broccoli. Enjoy!
