Broccoli and Shiitake Mushrooms in Oyster Sauce

This is a very simple Chinese style vegetable dish that anyone can cook easily for a quick meal. I prefer to use fresh shiitake mushrooms but you can use any type of mushroom if you find the flavour of shiitake is too strong for you.

When selecting broccoli, choose a bunch that is unblemished with dark green tops. The florets should also be bound tightly together with firm stalks and not limp or wobbly. Make sure to clean the broccoli before cooking by soaking in water mix with a little vinegar. Rinse thoroughly to remove any dirt of even insects.

Blanching broccoli quickly in boiling water gives it a more crisp tender texture and brings out its flavor and colour.
