broccoli with oyster sauce and shaohsing wine

Simple, delicious and nutritious - this way of cooking broccoli (or, if you like, pak choi) always goes down well.

Broccoli - either conventional sort or tenderstem.  If you're using ordinary broccoli, dismantle it into small florets;  peel stem and cut into slices about half a centimetre thick.
2-3 tablespoons peanut oil for frying
approx 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
approx 2 tablespoons Shaohsing wine

Steam broccoli for about 4 minutes until it starts to be tender.  Plunge it into icy water then drain and pat dry on a clean tea towel.

Heat peanut oil in a wok until it is hot.  Transfer broccoli to the wok being careful not to splash yourself with hot oil.  Add oyster sauce.  Stir well to cover, then carry on stir-frying for a minute before adding the Shaohsing wine.  Stir fry until the liquid has almost all boiled off, then serve.
