Broccoli with Orange Sauce

I was looking for a quick and simple recipe for broccoli and I was glad I found this side dish recipe from my recipe book, A Taste of Home. It's really easy to prepare and I like the taste ;)
Since I used fresh broccoli, I boiled it for 2 minutes with a little bit of water in a pan using the stove top.


2 packages (10 ounce each) frozen broccoli spears
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon grated orange peel

Cook broccoli according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter. Whisk in cornstarch until smooth. Gradually stir in orange juice; add orange peel. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Drain broccoli; drizzle with sauce. Yield: 4 servings.
