    Hey Jude's Note:

    This recipe is from 'Madame Wong's Long-Life Chinese Cookbook', which I received free when given an electric West Bend wok as a wedding gift. I've been making broccoli this way for years. It's a quick, easy, healthy recipe.

      This recipe is wonderful! A friend made it for dinner one night and rattled off the recipe, which I promptly forgot. I was so interested because she mentioned that she cooks a lot of vegies this way now. When I got home, I knew that somebody would have posted it, so I checked and it was here so I made the dish for dinner tonight. It was simple to make and really only took 6 minutes! The broccoli is cooked through but still a bit crunchy and the flavor is wonderful! Thanks so much for posting this!

      This is so good, I made it just like the recipe said, except I didn't use as much water, just added a couple of tablespoons then took the lid off and added the sesame seeds & let them toast, Yummy. Thanks Judy, for another tasty recipe.

      I couldn't believe how quick and easy this recipe is. I used the sesame seeds, and it added a nice touch. Everyone liked it. Next time I'll add about half the water. I had quite a bit left after boiling for three minutes and had to drain some before stir-frying the last minute. Thanks for sharing this technique. I'll make it again.
