Makes: 4 side servings
tablespoons homemade XO sauce
tablespoons olive oil, divided
head broccoli rabe, cut into 2-inch pieces and rinsed
- In a small bowl, thin the XO sauce with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil to a large, heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. When shimmering, add the broccoli rabe and reduce to low.
