The fresh crisp Chinese broccoli is drizzled with a sizzling oyster sauce with a sweet savory flavor. Plenty of fresh ginger and garlic are added so that the pungent herby aroma is noticeable from far away. You will be amazed that a dish could be this simple yet so full of flavor.
- 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon peanut oil (or vegetable oil)
- 300 grams (10 ounces) Chinese broccoli , tough ends and stem surfaces removed
- 1 tablespoon garlic , minced
- 1 teaspoon ginger , minced
Combine oyster sauce, sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Mix well and set aside.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add broccoli and boil over medium heat, until the broccoli is cooked through and the stem part remains crisp. Drain broccoli, transfer to a large plate, and set aside.
Heat a small skillet on medium high heat until hot. Add peanut oil, garlic and ginger. Stir a few times with a spatula until fragrant. Turn to lowest heat. Add the oyster sauce mixture into skillet and stir with a spatula immediately to avoid burning the sauce. When the sauce becomes fragrant, after 10 to 20 seconds, stop heat.
Pour the oyster sauce over the Chinese broccoli and serve warm.
