This is a popular stir-fry dish for everyday family meals. Goes great with meats, poultry and seafood.
1 pound fresh broccoli
1 scallion, including the green top
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil (for cooking in a non-stick wok or a fry pan)
2 tablespoons water
1-½ tablespoons soy sauce (Kikkoman brand)
1 teaspoon pure sesame oil
½ teaspoon sugar
Wash and cut the broccoli into small florets. Peel tough outer membrane from stems and slice into 1/4 inch thin bite-size pieces. Wash and trim the green onion, finely chop.
Heat oil in a non-stick wok or a large frying pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, brown onions for a few seconds. Add broccoli, cook and stir for about 1 minute. Add water, soy sauce, sesame oil and sugar. Cook and stir until the broccoli is tender yet still crunchy for about 3 to 4 minutes. Serve hot.
