Cuisine American


  • 8 celery stalks, rinsed and trimmed, leaves chopped and reserved
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter Pinch kosher salt Pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup good quality beef stock or broth


  • Directions:
    Peel any of the fibrous outer stalks of celery with a vegetable peeler and slice into 1-inch pieces on the bias.  Heat butter in a 10-inch sauté pan over medium heat. Once melted, add celery, salt, and pepper and cook for 5 minutes until just beginning to soften slightly. Add beef broth and stir to combine. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until celery is tender but not mushy, approximately 5 minutes. Uncover and allow celery to continue to cook for an additional 5 minutes or until the liquid has been reduced to a glaze. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with reserved leaves.
