  • cup oyster sauce

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

  • Coarse salt

  • 1 ½ pounds broccoli, florets cut into bite-size pieces, stems trimmed, peeled, and cut crosswise ¼ inch thick

  • 12 ounces snow peas, ends trimmed


  1. Make brown sauce: In a large bowl, whisk together oyster sauce, vinegar, and sesame oil until combined; season with salt.

  2. In a large pot fitted with a steamer basket, bring 1 inch of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add broccoli to basket in a single layer. Cover; steam until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes.

  3. Scatter snow peas on top of broccoli in an even layer; cover, and continue steaming until snow peas are bright green, about 1 minute more. Add broccoli and snow peas to bowl with sauce; toss to coat. Serve immediately.
