Chinese Broccoli is the perfect healthy side dish. It has a sweet flavor with juicy stems and is especially tasty when cooked in a garlicky Asian sauce.


  • 1 pound Chinese broccoli Gai Lan
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ tablespoon minced ginger


  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon Chinese spices
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar


  • sesame seeds
  • chopped green onions


  • Wash the Chinese Broccoli and trim about 1-inch from the ends of the stalk and discard.
  • Place a large wok or skillet over medium heat. Add the canola oil and heat it up.
  • Once hot, add the garlic and ginger, stir and cook for about 30 seconds.
  • Add the Chinese Broccoli stalks, toss and saute for about 3 minutes.
