Thursday's Side Dish: Chinese Broccoli Stir-fry

A stripped down version of the original

We’ve left out the soy sauce and oyster sauce in this simple Chinese broccoli stir-fry. The coarse salt and minced garlic enhance the veggie flavors in this rendition. The secret is to let the chopped garlic fry for 2 to 3 minutes before adding the cut Chinese broccoli. Here’s the recipe:

What you will need:

1 wooden spoon
1 bunch of Chinese broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
3 tablespoons cooking oil
1 wok or fry-pan
1 garlic clove, chopped small
Pinch of coarsely ground salt

Cooking and Directions:

Heat up wok on medium-high heat. Add cooking oil. Wait until oil smokes a bit before tossing in salt and garlic. Stir well. Let garlic fry and become toasty. Add Chinese broccoli to wok. Toss well. Let greens cook for no longer than 4 to 6 minutes while constantly mixing. Serve immediately.
