DIRECTIONS

  • Trim the gai lan- don't cut off the long, thick stem because, unlike North American broccoli, the stem of gai lan will cook well to become nice and tender; the flowers are also edible so don't remove them.
  • Place gai lan in a Dutch oven and fill with plenty of water.
  • Add the chopped garlic.
  • Bring water to a boil, lower heat, and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the thickest part of the stem is tender.
  • Combine the soy, brown sugar, fish sauce, and sesame oil.
  • Drain the gai lan and place on serving plate, then drizzle the soy mixture over.
  • Serve and enjoy!
  • Gai lan is also good with oyster sauce.
