This is the “real deal” Restaurant Fashion Chinese Broccoli with Oyster Sauce that you get at Chinese restaurants, most generally at Yum Cha (Dim Sum). In spite of what you may possibly read through in a lot of blogs and recipe websites, it is not just plain oyster sauce dolloped on steamed greens! This takes minutes to make employing my helpful tip for steaming the greens in the microwave just employing clingwrap.
Real “restaurant style” Chinese Broccoli with Oyster Sauce is NOT just oyster sauce (in spite of what you will go through in many blogs and recipe sites claiming it is that simple). A sauce made with just oyster sauce will just taste of that – plain oyster sauce dolloped on greens. And if you’re content with that, then there’s no want to study more simply because this recipe for genuine Restaurant Fashion Chinese Greens with Oyster Sauce has more than 1 ingredient in the sauce!
Dining establishments generally use very a bit of oil when serving this dish – you can typically see it pooled on the plate. I have significantly lowered the amount of oil employed, and believe me, you won’t miss it at all. It is the sauce that is the star of this dish. You don’t want oil (nicely, not very much).
Firstly, I need to qualify and say even though the sauce is “real”, my approach of steaming the Chinese broccoli (or any other leafy Chinese greens I use for this recipe, like bok choy) is not the restaurant way. Traditionally it is blanched or steamed (occasionally stir fried). But as I have an aversion to washing up (and no dishwasher…), I like to cook my greens the way my grandmother taught me – wrapped in cling wrap and steamed in the microwave. No pots, 2 minutes, and comes out completely every single time!
You can cook one particular modest bunch of Chinese broccoli, or half a massive bunch (pictured) per bundle, and you can steam 2 bundles in the microwave at the identical time – it requires about thirty seconds longer.
This recipe is a regular in my midweek meal rotation due to the fact it actually will take me 5 minutes to put together, creating it the perfect side to accompany any Asian dish.
