  1. 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.
  2. 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.

I like to use this sauce to toss not only Gai Lan, but also broccoli or green beans. It makes a flavorful veggie side for any asian meat & steamed rice dish. I find that half the sauce is plen...

This is a yummy recipe. I used regular broccoli because that is what we had on hand. The only thing it is missing is a little heat so I added red pepper flakes for that. Pairs well with Asian ...

Very good! Didn't change a thing! This is a must everyone should try. 12yr old son said this is better than broccoli with cheese that says alot!

This was awesome and easy. We used a bag of frozen regular broccoli. Our kids LOVED this!

even though I didn't have hoisin, this was still great.
