Anchovies and red-pepper flakes add a spicy twist to this broccoli side dish.
Starting with flower end of broccoli, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add anchovies and red-pepper flakes. Cook, mashing anchovies with a wooden spoon, about 1 minute.
Raise heat to medium. Add broccoli; season with salt and ground pepper. Cook, stirring often, until broccoli is crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water. Simmer, covered, until broccoli is tender, 4 to 5 minutes more.
