*I'm frequently asked about the results when using frozen broccoli, and this does work exceptionally well if you can leave your broccoli time to either a) thaw completely, then paper towel dry to remove excess water or b) par-cook in a microwave to remove the excess moisture (the steamable bags are perfect in this case).
