This ginger broccoli recipe tastes as good as the broccoli in those delectable Chinese take-out dishes without the pricey take-out cost. Pair with a pork dish for a blend of flavors that compliment each other instead of fighting for center stage.
1 1/2 lbs broccoli, florets and stems sliced into diagonal pieces
1 1/2 Tablespoons dark sesame oil
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons brown sugar
4 Tablespoons water
1. Saute the broccoli over medium heat in sesame oil for 8 minutes.
2. While broccoli is cooking, stir together the soy sauce, ginger, and sugar; stirring until sugar dissolves.
3. Add the soy mixture to the broccoli along with the water, cover and simmer for 2 minutes more. Serves 6.
