Recipe Tips

  • Make sure the broccoli goes in towards the end as it will quickly overcook. The recommended thirty minutes should be long enough.
  • Fresh or frozen broccoli will both work great, so use whatever is available to use. If you frozen broccoli, make sure you defrost it first.
  • Oyster sauce can be replaced with hoisin sauce.
  • Sesame seeds are an excellent garnish.
  • Double-check the ingredients on the soy sauce and oyster sauce to ensure this dish ends up gluten-free. Both of these ingredients have gluten-free variations available.
