how to cut broccoli for grilling
It's very important to cut the broccoli into large florets. We're talking at least 2" long here, with a bit of stem still hanging on. This stem is what is going to keep the broccoli on the grates, otherwise the main floret part could cook down and fall between the grates.
how to make grilled broccoli
- Cut large florets
- Toss in broccoli marinade for grilling (lemon, red pepper flakes, olive oil, soy sauce, garlic powder)
- Heat up the grill and oil the grates
