I eat broccoli all the time and after a while, I get tired of the same old roasted broccoli. I saw this recipe on TikTok and wanted to try it because I always love how the vegetables are made in Chinese restaurants but I never made them myself before. I love this, it’s super savory and flavorful and chock full of garlic. I adjusted this recipe for my own needs since I buy the big bag of broccoli from Sam’s/Costco. I also probably add way more garlic.
Chinese Broccoli with Oyster Sauce
2-3 lb Broccoli (I get the ready to use bags from Costco/Sam’s Club)
2 T neutral oil
2 t salt (for boiling broccoli)
3 T minced garlic (I used a whole head of garlic lol)
6 T oyster sauce
3 T shaoxing wine
¾ C Water
Cornstarch slurry: 3 t + 3 t water
Steam the broccoli to your liking. I boil it in a big pot of salted water for about 2-3 minutes, I don’t want the broccoli too soft. Drain broccoli from water and set aside.
Heat up oil and garlic until fragrant in a pan, no need to brown the garlic. Add the oyster sauce, shaoxing wine and water and bring to a boil. Add cornstarch slurry and stir immediately, take pan off the heat. Pour the sauce over the steamed broccoli, mix and serve!
Uuuuu, easy recipe!
Super easy! Great for lazy folks like me lol
Very good, but even this recipe I am lazy (to chop up all the garlic lol)
Broccoli is SO good for us. I need to eat more. This recipe is easy – maybe I’ll try but now I need to get the shaoxing wine.
Yeah! Or I usually just layout the broccoli on a baking sheet with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper and roast em! It tastes great and I’m sure you can use other seasonings but I just drench in hot sauce too. I try to eat broccoli as much as I can!
