Blanched Chinese Broccoli With Oyster Sauce

An Authentic Blanched Chinese Broccoli With Oyster Sauce Recipe

Chinese broccoli with oyster sauce - Oyster sauce nicely complements the bitter-sweet taste of Chinese broccoli (gai lan). Broccoli is blanched and coated in a savory oyster ... I love ordering Chinese greens with oyster garlic sauce. I first had this when we went out for Dim Sum. The stalks are crisp the dressing is salty, sweet and rich in short it was so good!
