Ingredients:

  • 1 pound broccoli
  • Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sherry
  • 1 -2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • Other:
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 thin slices ginger
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons oil for stir-frying

Preparation:

To prepare broccoli, break off the flowerets and then split them into either halves or quarters. Discard any leaves. Peel and slice the stems along the diagonal. Wash and thoroughly drain the sliced broccoli.

Mix sauce ingredients and set aside. Prepare garlic and ginger, crushing and peeling the garlic and finely mincing both.

Heat wok and add 2 tablespoons oil. When oil is ready, add the garlic and ginger, sauting until brown. Add the broccoli, stir-frying until they turn a brilliant green, then add the sugar and salt. Mix together well, then add the water, cover and cook for about two minutes.

Give the sauce a quick re-stir and add to the wok, pushing the broccoli to the side to make a well in the middle of the wok for the sauce. Stir the sauce with chopsticks until thickened, mix together with the broccoli, and serve hot.
