Just like all the reviewers of this Alton Brown recipe, I often have celery languishing in my refrigerator. Also like them, that may not be a problem in the future. Braised Celery is actually pretty good, and super simple as well.
Cut celery into 1″ chunks. Sauté in a bit of butter for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add some beef broth (his ratio was 1/2 cup broth for 8 stalks celery), cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove lid and cook for 5 more minutes until broth is reduced. That’s it!
