Broccoli-Garlic Stir-Fry

"Can use the stems from the broccoli also, just trim the outside tough skins and chop, you can adjust the garlic to taste. Feel free to add in a red bell pepper also if desired!"

  1. This was delicious! I used half the soy sauce because it was too salty for me. Steamed the broccoli 1-2 minutes before to make them more tender. I didn't have red pepper flakes so i used mexican chili powder (it was the only thing i had in the kitchen that could kind of do) and a few drops of sriracha to add some kick. My boyfriend went crazy for this ! It was paired with our Steak With Shallot-Red Wine Sauce recipe and a good glass of wine. Yum!
  2. Easy, good balance of flavors. Would suggest steam broccoli 1-2 minutes with sauce at the end.
  3. Very good! I used the full 2 tbsp of garlic (maybe a little more, we love garlic!) Simple, quick, not to salty, or sweet, great over rice! Thanks!
  4. My family LOVED this!!! I cooked chopped carrots with it and added some peanuts to it right before serving! I'll be making this again. Thanks!
  5. Used this recipe last night alongside some of Kitten's yummy hambergers. Excellent! Followed all exactly except I didn't have fresh ginger. I did however have some spicy ginger paste I picked up at an aisan food market in Seattle, my first opportunity to use it. Worked great, I also added half of a red pepper. When supper was over I boiled up a package of ramen noodles minus the spice packet and put them on top of the leftovers, perfect for a light lunch today. Thanks Kitten another wonderful recipe, as usual!


  1. I made this yesterday in my WOK. It was an on the fly thing and I didnt have alot of the ingrediants I thought I did. So I had no onions, I used ground ginger, and garlic powder and a bit of onion powder in place of the fresh (I was out) I did not use the red pepper or the black, or the sesame seeds. This was FANTASTIC! It tasted just like the kind we get at a chineese place! I will make this MANY more times, and will get the fresh ginger and garlic which Im SURE will make it that much better! Thank you for a wonderful recipe that everyone enjoyed!
