Yen tells me to do some quick Chinese Broccoli stir fry for her, so I did, she’s the boss. I don’t know why, but since she got pregnant, I seem to take her bossiness rather well. Previous to that I would whine first and tell her that I am lazy. But now, I am a yes man.
Yen says to make it spicy, so I did. Added a bit of heat by slicing 1 chili in small pieces. The dish has a prominent taste of Sesame with garlic flavors and of course some heat. Great for vegans as it’s mainly vegetables, no meat and so good.
This is a quick and easy, very simple recipe. I just love those kinds. This will take you less than 20 minutes depending how fast you are at prepping.
How To Make Chinese Broccoli Stir Fry
2 Bunches of Chinese Broccoli
2 Tablespoons of Sesame oil
3 Cloves or garlic
2 Tablespoons of Dim Sum sauce
- Clean and cut your Chinese Broccoli into 3 or 4 pieces.
- Dice up your 3 garlic cloves. Then cut the 1 chili in small pieces.
- Heat up your skillet or a wok and pour the 2 Tablespoons of Sesame oil in. I used my skillet because I can’t be bothered setting up my jet burner with my wok and it’s cold outside. Wait for the smoking point. This will ensure that the skillet is as hot as you can get it without burning the oil too much.
- Once smoke starts to develop, chuck your cloves of garlic in. Let the garlic change color.
- As soon as the garlic go brown-ish throw in your Chinese Broccoli. Toss around or use a spatula and stir.
- Add the 2 tablespoons of Dim Sum sauce and give it a stir or toss to blend all ingredients.
- Add in your Chili, you can omit this of course if you are not a fan. I just love the heat it brings and it’s also good for you.
- Taste and bite into the stalk of the Chinese Broccoli to see if it’s to your liking and if it’s soft enough for you to eat. If it’s still a bit concrete, cook it a bit more. Be careful though, you don’t want your vegetables wilt too much. You want them to stay a bit vibrant green.
- Add pepper for extra pep. Once satisfied with the taste and texture, take it off the heat and serve on it’s own or with rice. Use Basmati rice for a healthier option to a white rice.
