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.)
