    cookiedog's Note:

    This tastes just like the Gai-Lan that my DBF and I get when we go to Dim Sum on Sundays. It is really easy to make at home. It is similar to regular broccoli but it is slightly milder and has broad flat leaves instead of florets. If you can't find Gai Lan, you can substitute broccolini. The baking soda helps the broccoli retain its green color while cooking.

    Directions:

      Gai Lan: Rinse gai lan and trim the end of the stems. Bring eight cups of water to a boil in a large saucepan or stock pot. Stir in salt, baking soda, garlic and ginger. Add gai-lan. Cover and simmer about 4 minutes, until the gai lan turns bright green and is tender-crisp. Drain and serve drizzled with the oyster sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds.

      Sauce: Mix oyster sauce with water or broth, mirin and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil to melt the sugar. Remove from heat.

      This is the first time I have cooked Chinese broccoli at home and it won't be the last. We aren't big sweet fans, so I used only 1 teaspoon of sugar and followed everything else. Made to celebrate the Chinese New Year.

      With a little tweaking the basics of this could produce the really wonderful dish you get in Chinese restaurants. It was super overcooked, so I would check it at 1 minute (or just stir fry it), and use only oyster sauce for the topping; the sauce was too liquidy and wine-y for our tastes.

      We love our greens and this tasted just like the ones they serve at Yum Cha, quick, easy and health. Made for ZWT 6
