Peel the stringy skins off the stalks and cut them in strips. I like them raw. Good for dipping, or just by themselves.

It's hard for me to chow down a whole steak in one meal.

We do the same...

Hmm, I sure can tell the flavor difference between the two. Yep it's more expensive than broccoli, but then there's tenderloin vs. bottom round.

I agree with you Kayelle, we much prefer Broccolini to Broccoli.
It has a milder flavor.
Have you tried Gai Lan or sometimes seen as Kai Lan?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gai_lan
DELICIOUS!!
You eat the entire plant, well, maybe minus the roots
I was able to find this at the Asian Market in Southern AZ,
but here with the cowboys, no such luck.
I suppose we could take a day trip down the PHX,
but that's like taking your life in your hands.
They're crazy down there!

We certainly can tell the difference between tenderloin and bottom round. We can easily afford one of them! At least pork tenderloins are cheap by us. Cheaper than bologna or hot dogs, in fact.

Kayelle, we actually like the more flavorful broccoli, so that might be why I think that broccolini is "pricey". Then again, Himself and I actually enjoy and eat those Evil Little Green Balls known as Brussels Sprouts.
