Chinese Broccoli in Sweet Sauce

I love the crunchiness of Chinese broccoli. This is a simple dish which has a lovely, slightly sweet sauce. It’s a perfect accompaniment to hotpot or pretty much any other chinese dish.

1 bunch Chinese broccoli
1 clove garlic (minced)
1 teaspoon ginger (minced)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
¼ teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon hot chilli sauce

Mix together the soy sauce, sesame oil, oyster sauce, sugar, cornstarch and ½ cup water. Set aside. Heat the oil in a wok until hot. Add the garlic and ginger and fry for 10-15 seconds. Pour in the sauce (careful to avoid any spitting) then add the broccoli. Stir well then cover the pan – reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and serve immediately.
