I have a question about the recipe "Roy Finamore's Broccoli Cooked Forever" from Genius Recipes. I made this last week and my gas burner made it go mushy; do you think I could finish cooking it slowly in the oven?

This is a pretty common practice in certain regions of Italy. And when I make it, I never blanche the broccoli. I think it would be best for you to lower the temperature OR increase the amount of oil so that it covers the broccoli.
This should ensure a less mushy texture. However with this recipe; I think mushy is the intended result

I am in the middle of cooking it in the oven...I had the heat up too high but will def do it in the oven again. A little less mushy (literally all fell totally apart last time) and done in half the time - 50 minutes and not two hours. Suits my purpose fine! Thanks for the answers.
