Stir Fried Chinese Broccoli

Woks are fun to cook with.


  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 2 lb Chinese broccoli (sometimes known as Chinese kale), ends of stems trimmed and broccoli cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons Thai yellow bean sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sugar


Heat oil in wok over high heat until hot but not smoking, then stir-fry garlic until pale golden, 10 to 15 seconds. Add broccoli and stock and stir-fry 2 minutes. Add bean sauce, oyster sauce, and sugar and stir-fry until broccoli is crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
