Loved the spiciness of this dish...I used lemon juice in place of the oil and it seemed to work it add another tartness to it...I also used fresh ginger, minced...this is a keeper and I'm going to keep it close by...Thanks for posting it...:)

Wow, that's some spicy broccoli! I love stir-fried broccoli and this dish was really good! I'm not sure if it was the red pepper or the rice wine vinegar, but heating them can be a little overwhelming on your nose so I used the vent hood over the stove. I think next time I might not heat the red pepper flakes, but rather sprinkle them over the cooked broccoli along with the sesame seeds. I think I might also use fresh ginger along with the garlic. I will definitely make this dish again! Made for the 1-2-3 Tag, January, 2012.

A flavorful side that was not to spice for DH but still had a enough flavor to make it a nice side. I made as written and the broccoli was a nice crispy tend. Thanks for the post.
