Recipes - Sherry-steamed Broccoli with Portobello Mushroom Butter

Broccoli often needs a lift, and this simple recipe does the trick.  The broccoli is steamed in sherry instead of water, and garnished with a mushroom butter.  The steaming suffuses the vegetable with the sweet sherry taste, and the mushroom butter is the perfect complement.
