 Chinese Broccoli Recipe
You are most likely find this vegetable dish at Dim Sum Restaurants. We had been trying to cook this dish many time but couldn't get the right texture until my friend's dad told us the secret of how to cook this by boiling the veggies instead of stir-frying it. Turned out it's such a quick and easy dish to prepare. In addition the Chinese Broccoli from the farmer market is organic and tender; better than the ones at Dim Sum Restaurant. ;)
