Broccoli with Oyster Sauce

  • servings: 4




  • 3 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
  • 1 head broccoli (1 1/2 pounds), cut into long florets


  1. Step 1

    In a small bowl, whisk together oyster sauce, soy sauce, cornstarch, sugar, and 1 tablespoon water.

  2. Step 2

    In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high. Add garlic and broccoli. Cook, tossing occasionally, until broccoli is bright green, about 3 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water, cover, and cook until broccoli is tender but still has some bite, about 2 1/2 minutes. Add oyster sauce mixture; cook until thickened, about 1 minute.

    Pretty good recipe. The sauce is definitely far too watery for my tastes, however-- I prefer a nice, thick sauce. I would use less than a third of the specified water (the broccoli holds a lot of water of its own). I also doubled up on the garlic, because garlic is great.

    this was lovely although I don't think I used enough broccoli, I wanted to use up what I had! Therefore the water was a bit too much and sauce could have been thicker... but it was delicious, I served it with thai fishcakes and a homemade chunky salsa. Yum!

    EWjunk: Oyster sauce is very similar to soy sauce, but thicker, its not very "fishy" at all. I think you picked up something else

    super quick. super easy. super good! i added a teaspoon of siracha sauce for some spice.

    sauce smelled awful (like rotten, fermented seafood), tasted awful too. I guess oyster sauce is a taste I have not acquired!
