Recipe - Sweet Love Broccoli

I was trying to make Thai Firecracker Broccoli, but I didn't have all the ingredients. So some experimentation happened and this is the result. Very sweet with a good tang at the end. My entire family likes it and I'm keeping the recipe! It had to be renamed, though and Sweet Love was what came to mind, corny as it may be.

Sweet Love Sauce: (more sweet than hot)
½ cup water
1 cup sugar
½ cup rice vinegar
1 TB garlic pwd
1 ts salt
1 TB chili oil
1 ts cayenne pwd (more if you like things hot)

1. Bring first 5 ingredients to a boil, lower heat and simmer 20 minutes.
2. Add chili oil & cayenne to mixture, cook 2 mins, pour into container to keep refrigerated.

Sweet Love Broccoli:
1 large head of broccoli, already steamed
6-8 TB of Sweet Love sauce
½ cup vegetable broth
2 TB oil

1. Heat oil in skillet. Add broccoli and cook for a few minutes until it begins to wilt.
2. Add vegetable broth and simmer for several minutes on high.
3. Pour pre-made SL sauce over the broccoli and continue to cook on high for 5 more minutes, stirring frequently.
4. Drain if necessary and eat either hot or cold.
