- 1 head garlic, peeled (about 16 cloves)
- 1 cup good olive oil
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 4 stalks broccoli, cut into florets (8 cups of florets)
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
Put the garlic cloves and oil in a small heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook uncovered over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes, until the garlic is browned and tender. Turn off the heat and add the red pepper flakes and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Immediately pour into a heat-proof container to stop the cooking. Allow to cool to room temperature.
For the salad, blanch the broccoli florets in a large pot of boiling salted water for 2 to 3 minutes, until crisp-tender. Drain well and immerse immediately into a large bowl of ice water until the broccoli is cooled. This process stops the cooking and sets the bright green color. Drain well.
In a large bowl, toss the broccoli with 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup of the oil used to cook the garlic, the soy sauce, and 8 or more cloves of cooked garlic. Taste for seasonings and serve cold or at room temperature.

This is the closest I could find to my Recipe
3 Tbsp red-wine vinegar
2 Tbsp water
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried-pepper flakes
1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley ( I also added in 1/4 cup cilantro)
12 oz. flank skirt, or sirloin steak
1 bunch scallions
1 – To make the sauce, mix the vinegar, water, garlic, salt, pepper flakes, and black pepper. Whisk is the oil. Once blended, whisk in the parsley.
2 – Preheat a grill or grill pan set to high. Season the steak with salt and pepper to taste; place it on the grill. For medium rare, cook it for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 140 degrees.
3 – Trim the roots from the scallions and add to entire bunch to the grill just after you’ve flipped the steak. Cook the scallions until they’re lightly charred (about 4 to 5 minutes).
4 – Drizzle the steak with the sauce and serve it with the grilled scallions.
