Best broccoli EVER!

This is a favorite in our house....we ate two heads of broccoli at dinner tonight (between two adults and one toddler)...try it! Your family will thank you!!!
Mix sauce together - set aside
Heat oil (medium high) - stir fry garlic and ginger until brown
Add brocolli - stir fry until bright green
Sprinkle sugar and salt into pan, stir to coat
Add water, cook covered until desired tenderness (we go a bit softer now than we used to, because its easier for the little guy to munch on it)
Here's where I had to improvise, since we don't have a wok:  Move broccoli to one side of the pan, tip pan so that the broccoli is at the top, add sauce to the bottom of pan, stir sauce until thickened, combine

1/4 c water
2tbsp oyster sauce
1tbsp chinese cooking wine
1 1/2tsp corn starch

2tbsp vegetable oil
2tsp sugar
salt to taste
1/4 water (set aside)
1 head broccoli

Do you think you will try it?


  1. That's not real chinese oyster sauce!!! (I can say that cuz I'm Chinese! lol)

    this is the real stuff :D Get it at any Chinese grocery store :)

  2. OK LL, you found me out!!! I did buy that oyster sauce at Walmart :) Next time I am at TNT I will upgrade!!!!!!!!! I am sure it will make the broccoli EVEN BETTER!!

    What do you expect when the non-chinese member of the family tries to mix it up Hong Kong styles!!!!!!

    Tonight I am making braised lamb shanks...I just finished putting it all together...into the oven to slowly cook it goes!!! It took the big guy's full nap to execute this recipe...
