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!
