Chili Garlic Broccoli

Chili Garlic Broccoli created by teresas

This is a recipe of one of my friends. It was modified from a recipe with Kai-lan (Chinese broccoli) that her mom made back at home in China. She used Western broccoli because Kai-lan was usually pretty expensive where we were living. The measurements are estimates as she would do it by the look of it.

ingredients

  • 500 g broccoli (about one large head, chopped into bite sized florets, chop off the biggest ends)
  • 1 long red chili pepper, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove (finely minced or pressed)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce (important because it is sweeter, which you need with the less sweet Western broccoli, if you don't h)

directions

  • Boil water for steamer.
  • Put broccoli in steamer for 4 minutes until slightly soften.
  • Heat oil in pan on medium heat and fry chili and garlic for a minute.
  • Turn up heat to high, add broccoli and stir occasionally for a minute.

    An amazingly tasty way to cook broccoli. I cheated and used frozen flowerets as the fresh didn't look to good at the market. I will be making this again with fresh broccoli from my garden.<br/>Made for Spring PAC 2012.
