Software

  • 8 stalks celery, rinsed and trimmed, leaves chopped and reserved
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • Pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup beef stock or broth
ACTIVE TIME: 15 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

Procedure

  • Peel any of the fibrous outer stalks of celery with a vegetable peeler and slice into 1-inch pieces on the bias.
  • Heat the butter in a 10-inch sauté pan set over medium heat. Once melted, add the celery, salt, and pepper, and cook until the celery begins to soften slightly, approximately 5 minutes. Add the beef broth and stir to combine. Cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook until the celery is tender but not mushy, approximately 5 minutes.
  • Uncover, increase the heat to high, and continue to cook until the liquid has been reduced to a glaze, about 5 more minutes. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with the reserved celery leaves.
