From the Garden...Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

My husband and I enjoyed this pretty side dish with baked salmon and fresh tomatoes, finishing with Fruit Sorbet.  We had our whole meal on the table in less than 30 minutes.    I may halve the amount of sauce ingredients next time, but not the garlic and cashews!              
Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews
  1 1/2  Pounds  Broccoli -- cut in spears
  1         Cup  Water
 Sauce
1/3       Cup  Butter  (I would use 2 ½ tablespoons)
  1         Tablespoon  Brown Sugar -- firmly packed  (I would use 1 ½ teaspoons)
  1/4     Teaspoon  Pepper
  3         Tablespoons  Soy Sauce  (I would use 1 ½ tablespoons)
  2         Teaspoons  Vinegar (I would use 1 teaspoon)
  1/4     Teaspoon  Garlic -- minced
  1/3     Cup  Cashews -- salted, whole
In Dutch oven place broccoli spears; add water.  Cover; bring to a full boil.  Cook over medium heat until crisply tender 5-7 minutes; drain.  Remove to serving platter, keep warm.
In same Dutch oven melt butter, add remaining ingredients except cashews.  Cook over medium heat 3-4 minutes.  Stir in cashews.  Serve broccoli with sauce.
