Beer Glazed Broccoli

Beer Glazed Broccoli

Beer Glazed BroccoliThis time of year everyone is talking about the meats they’re grilling. But what about the veggies?! Yes, meat is all kinds of awesome but a complete meal it does not make. Throw some greenery on the grill and now we’re talking.

That’s what we did when we were tasked with trying the Vegetable Griller from Wilton Armetale. We used it to make the best broccoli ever. That’s coming from a man and it’s thanks to the not so secret ingredient. I’m going to make you guess what the special ingredient is. Here’s a hint:

Most men enjoy it and it isn’t bacon (or sex… or cheese)

Okay, fine. I’ll just tell ya cause we know how hard it is to figure men out. The secret ingredient is beer. Now you get it! We were just sitting on the deck grilling the broccoli with butter, salt and pepper and thought “Hmmm… I wonder what it would be like with beer.”

We poured about 1/4 of a bottle onto the Wilton Armetale Vegetable Griller and my goodness! It caramelized so prettily and the florets soaked up the flavor like a sponge soaks up water. For the complete recipe, see below.

This was definitely the best broccoli I’ve ever eaten, let alone made. It was so flavorful and so simple. The Wilton Armetale Vegetable Griller played a big part too. It helped make sure the beer had a place to sit while the veggies absorbed the liquid. It also gave us nice, even cooking instead of some being raw while the others were burning.

I’ve had that happen a lot over my years playing grill master.

I also used the Wilton Armetale Vegetable Griller to make some yummy Pico de Gallo Chicken Wings! They came out incredibly good too, so did the grilled Pico de Gallo. So much flavor!


I’m always happy to try out new items. I’m even happier when those items leave me speechless and/or in awe. That’s exactly what came from the Wilton Armetale Vegetable Griller. Not only does it look so darn cute, but it’s made with quality in mind. I’ve dropped it a few times and it hasn’t broke, chipped or cracked at all. The only downside is it isn’t dishwasher safe, but I coat it with cooking spray before I use it so clean up is super quick and effortless.

  • 1 pound of broccoli, cleaned and cut up
  • 4 tablespoons of butter, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 bottle of beer
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


Heat your grill and place broccoli in a pan for grilling. Use the Wilton Armetale Vegetable Griller for great results!

Place the pan on the grill and top the broccoli with the butter, salt and pepper. Cover and grill for 15 minutes.

Carefully remove the grill cover and pour beer over the broccoli, try to distribute it evenly.

Recover the veggies and cook for an additional 15 minutes. Use tongs to flip the broccoli, return cover and heat for another 5 - 10 minutes or until the broccoli is at the desired doneness.

Something else that is awesome about the Wilton Armetale Vegetable Griller is its versatility. Take it from the freezer to oven to tabletop to fridge to grill… It goes everywhere (except the dish washer!) The price tag is something else I’m loving. You can get this veggie griller for under $40 – which is a bargain when you consider the quality and craftsmanship behind it.
