芥兰 (Chinese Broccoli)

I love this dish! We can’t get 芥兰 here (Asian markets do not exist within a 2 hour radius of here), but Kosina went home several weekends ago and aside from all the food her parents gave her to bring back, she also stopped by Andrea’s parents’ place (and they essentially compounded the amount of food that she brought back). This basically equates to happy times for everyone. :D The sugar was added since 芥兰 is normally kinda bitter on its own.

芥兰 (Chinese Broccoli)

-Chinese broccoli
-4-5 cloves of garlic
-2-3 tbsp vegetable oil
-oyster sauce

1) Heat a wok/frying pan over medium high heat and add 2-3 tbsp vegetable oil.
2) Swirl it around and add the garlic. Stir-fry for 30 seconds to 1 minute (avoid over-browning it or it’ll be bitter).
3) Add Chinese broccoli and stir-fry until wok becomes dry.
4) Remove from heat and add oyster sauce.
