Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (8 votes)

When stir-frying firm vegetables like broccoli, cover the wok for 30 seconds after adding the sauce. Cooking the vegetables covered, even for a short time, helps to keep them crisp but tender. If Chinese broccoli is available in your market, use this same method but cut the stalks and leaves into 2-inch pieces.

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

This recipe calls for:

Preparation

  1. Heat a 14-inch flat-bottomed wok or large skillet over high heat until a bead of water vaporizes within 1 to 2 seconds of contact. Swirl canola oil into the pan, add ginger and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add broccoli and stir-fry until bright green, 1 to 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and stir-fry for 15 seconds. Stir Rice Wine-Oyster Sauce and swirl it into the pan; cover and cook for 30 seconds. Stir-fry until the vegetables are just tender but the broccoli is still bright green, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in sesame oil. Serve immediately.

Tips & Notes

  • Make Ahead Tip: Prep the broccoli up to 4 hours ahead
  • Shao Hsing (or Shaoxing) is a seasoned rice wine. It is available in most Asian specialty markets and some larger supermarkets in the Asian section. If unavailable, dry sherry is an acceptable substitute.
