Blanched Gai Lan Dressed With Rice Wine & Oys Recipe
2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp chicken stock
1 tbsp shao hsing wine, or dry sherry
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 to 1 1/2 pounds gai lan (chinese br, occoli)
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp peanut oil
Gai lan is Chinese broccoli. It's not much like the Western stuff.
It has thinner stems, flowers and leaves and is eaten more as a green.
Combine the oyster sauce, chicken stock, Shao Hsing wine, sugar and
sesame oil in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until sauce
thickens. Set aside.
Wash the gai lan in cold water. Trim off and discard the tough
bottoms. Peel stalks if they are thick and tough; leave gai lan whole
or cut into thirds.
Bring 3 to 4 quarts of water to a boil in a wok or stock pot; add the
salt and oil. Add the greens, bring back to a second boil. Turn off
the heat and let greens stand for a minute or two. When the green
stalks brighten, test one for doneness. It should be tender and
crisp. Drain immediately and shake off excess water.
Transfer to a platter, pour dressing over, and serve immediately.
Serves 4 to 6.
