Chinese broccoli with garlic sauce – make takeout at home in your kitchen with this easy and delicious recipe!
Broccoli with garlic sauce – the holy grail of ordering for me when it comes to Chinese restaurants.
We have a local sit down Chinese place that my favorite thing to order is just a big old plate of broccoli stir fry.
Garlic sauce is my very favorite thing about takeout, and I decided to recreate that same amazing lick-the-plate-clean taste in my own kitchen!
If you have ever tried my stir fry sauce recipe, you know that it has changed my life! It is only 3 ingredients, and transforms blah stir fry into holy wow this is amazing stir fry! I write all about how it’s the perfect sauce in my post about How do You Thicken Stir Fry Sauce?
I’m using that same incredible stir fry sauce to make this chinese broccoli not only crazy good, but crazy easy to make!
Easy and delicious chinese broccoli with garlic sauce - this tastes just like your favorite takeout!
1/3 cup minced fresh garlic
2 tablespoons sesame oil
8 - 9 cups fresh broccoli florets
1 batch of stir fry sauce
white rice, for serving
In a large skillet, add 2 tablespoons of sesame oil and heat to medium
Add minced garlic and cook for 3 - 5 minutes, stirring often, until garlic begins to brown
Add broccoli florets and stir fry sauce to the skillet and cook an additional 10 - 15 minutes, stirring often, until broccoli is desired texture (I prefer mine with a little crunch, so right around 10 minutes was perfect for me)
