INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb gai lan / Chinese broccoli (450g)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • inch ginger (peeled and cut into thin slices) (45g)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 4 oz mushrooms (optional)
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Shao Hsing cooking wine
  • 1 tsp corn starch mixed with 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Wash and drain gailan thoroughly. Trim 1 inch off the end of the stalks. Cut off each leave from the stalk and then cut the leave into 2 or 3 bite size pieces at a diagonal, about 2 to 3 inches in length. Cut the top part of the remaining stalk into bite size pieces as well, leaving the remaining end of 3 to 5 inches. This woody section should be peeled with a paring knife before cutting diagonally into bite size pieces. Stems and leaves should preferably be separated.
