Chinese Broccoli (Gai La) with Oyster Sauce is a common dish that you’ll find in a lot of Chinese homes or restaurants. If you’ve ever been to a dim sum place, this is often one of the only the healthy green vegetable dishes that comes around on the carts.
Boil 2 quarts/liters of water in your wok or a large pot, and add the salt and oil directly to the water.
When the water reaches a good raging boil, carefully add the whole stalks of Chinese broccoli. (Depending on how much you have, you may want to work in two batches.)
Use tongs or a pair of chopsticks to submerge the veggies completely and cook for 1-2 minutes, until tender but still a bit crunchy. (If you like the veggies soft, leave them in a bit longer.)
Use a pair of tongs or chopsticks to take the Chinese broccoli out of the water. Carefully shake off excess liquid and arrange on a plate. Once they are all plated, you can drain any excess water that may have pooled on the plate.
Drizzle a couple tablespoons oyster sauce evenly over the veggies and serve!
