Broccoli + Brown Sauce


This was the side to peking duck we made a few weeks ago.  To make it a meal, toss with cooked tofu and serve over brown rice.  

Serves 4 as a side. 

Broccoli + Brown Sauce

2 heads broccoli, sliced

3 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon oyster sauce

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Splash of oil

1 teaspoon corn starch dissolved in 2 tablespoons water

1 inch ginger, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 long red hot chile, seeded, sliced

Blanch broccoli in boiling water for 1 minute.  Drain and transfer to ice bath.  Once cool, drain.  

In a small bowl, mix soy, oyster sauce, rice vinegar and sesame oil.  Set aside.  

Heat a splash of oil in a skillet or wok over medium high heat.  Add broccoli, ginger, garlic and chile.  Cook 2 minutes stirring frequently.  Add sauce.  Bring to a boil and add corn starch slurry.  Cook until thickened. Serve.
