Ready In:




  • Heat a wok over high heat until it begins to smoke. Swirl in the oil to coat its surface evenly. Let the oil heat for 15-20 seconds.
  • Add chopped garlic, followed 10 seconds later with the sliced shallots or onion (if using). Saute 15-20 seconds to flavor the oil.
  • Add broccoli. Toss with the oil for about a minute before sprinkling with oyster sauce to lightly coat the pieces. Stir-fry another minute.
  • Season with fish sauce.
  • If the stove is very hot, add 1-2 tablespoons water as needed to help steam the vegetable so it doesn't burn.
  • Continue to stir-fry until broccoli turns vibrant green and is crisply cooked.
  • Sprinkle generously with white pepper, stir well and transfer to serving dish.
  • Serve warm along with other dishes and steamed rice.

  1. Mrs. Gosh thank you for a good recipe. I think the oyster and fish sauce made it a little to salty for our taste though. I will try again and lessen both sauces; otherwise the flavor was good.


I grew up in Connecticut with a mom who loved to cook. Soul food fixed with love is my very favorite, but I also love trying new things. I'm now living in the San Francisco Bay Area. The food here is divine and the opportunities for learning abound. I recently took a Thai cooking class and have added some recipes from the instructer's authentic cookbook. Helpful hint: fish sauce = salt, cook to taste. I'd never even eaten Indian food until I moved to the Bay area. At first all the spices scared me; now I've got a whole rack full, from HOT curry and cardamom seeds to cloves and anise. In May 2007, I married my DH in the Sonoma wine country. We spent our honeymoon in the Mediterranean. Provence, Sicily, and Santorini, among others. Now I'm trying to recapture the flavor of the area. I hope to have time soon to add all my favorite recipes. Thank you all for sharing yours.
