INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pt. cherry tomatoes

  • 1/4 c. sugar

  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder

  • 3 1/2 oz. roughly torn baguette (generous 2 cups)

  • 1 1/2 oz. finely grated Parmesan

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil

  • 2 broccoli crowns, each cut in half

  • Kosher salt and pepper

METHOD

  1. Heat oven to 425°F. In a small saucepan, simmer tomatoes, sugar, chili powder and 1/2 cup water until completely broken down and glossy, 20 to 25 minutes.

  2. In a food processor, pulse bread with Parmesan to form coarse crumbs. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet and toast in oven until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, heat a large cast-iron skillet on medium-high. Add oil, then broccoli crowns, cut sides down, and cook until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Flip broccoli, season with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper, transfer to oven and roast until just tender, about 16 minutes. Serve broccoli steak with tomato jam and crumbs.
