Gai Lan (Chinese Broccoli)


1 Bunch Gai Lan, trimmed

2 Tbsp white sugar

1 Tbsp cornstarch

2 Tbsp soy sauce

1 Tbsp rice vinegar

1 Tbsp sesame oil

3 Tbsp hosing sauce

1 tsp minced fresh ginger root

2 cloves garlic

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the Chinese broccoli and cook uncovered until just tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, whisk the sugar, cornstarch, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, hoisin sauce, ginger, and garlic together in a small saucepan over medium heat until thickened and no longer cloudy, 5 to 7 minutes. Toss the broccoli in the sauce and serve.

* Play around w/ the amount of sugar to suit your taste

*You can also saute the Gai Lan, or substitute in regular broccoli
