When we order broccoli in China, this is the standard preparation: oil, garlic, and salt. (Sometimes with MSG or a bit of chicken broth or bouillon granules.) This is just right.

Crunchy and tasty broccoli! This recipe is so simple, but it gives your broccoli a nice flavor without having it swim in sauce. I went low on the salt because oyster sauce can be quite salty. I drizzled the oyster sauce while the broccoli was still in the wok and tossed it around before serving. That little bit of oyster sauce makes a big difference in flavor! I'll certainly prepare broccoli this way again. Thanx for sharing this.

Really like the oyster sauce on the broccoli. Next time I'll probably not use any salt-the sauce seems salty enough.
