Chinese broccoli with Oyster Sauce
||Oyster sauce can
be found in the Asian section of most supermarkets, or at any
Asian market. A
|to try is Lee Kum Kee Ö donít go with the
cheapest brands, as they may taste too fishy. If you canít
find Chinese broccoli (often called gai lan), you can
easily substitute ordinary broccoli, or most any other leafy
green. This makes a terrific side dish, or just pair it with a
big bowl of rice for a light meal.
10-12 stalks Chinese broccoli
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 c. water
2 tbsp. oyster sauce
1 tbsp. wine
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. soy sauce
Ĺ tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. cornstarch
serves 4 (side dish);
2 (main meal)
1. Boil a pot of water. Wash
the broccoli and trim off the ends. Chop the garlic.
2. When the water reaches a
boil, blanche the broccoli for approximately 4 minutes (until the
vegetables are cooked through, but still slightly crisp Ö you donít
want them to lose their bright green color).
3. While the broccoli is
cooking, mix the sauce ingredients in a bowl.
4. Drain the broccoli and set it
5. In a wok or skillet, heat 1 tbsp
oil and stir-fry the garlic until it turns translucent. Add the cooked
broccoli and the sauce ingredients. Cook until the sauce thickens,
approximately 1-2 minutes. Serve.
