  • Mix oyster sauce, brown sugar, and sesame oil together in a bowl. Drizzle sauce over the cooked Chinese broccoli.

Cook's Notes:

When purchasing jiè-lán, choose stalks that are on the thinner side, preferably no larger than 3/4-inch. Cut any that are thicker than that lengthwise, while ensuring there are leaves on both sides.

If you wanted to make this as a stir-fry instead, you can use smashed garlic cloves and slices of fresh ginger.
