When I was growing up in Brooklyn, many of my friends had working parents who would leave them money to buy Chinese takeout for dinner. I would crave their chicken wings, plantains and chicken with broccoli, but my mother was less than happy with my junky leanings. So she decided to make better Chinese takeout food at home, which is how this simple broccoli dish came about. It's been a hit ever since. I never order chicken with broccoli at my local takeout anymore. (Chicken wings are a different story.) -Vivian Chan, Recipe Tester

Ingredients

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Trim the broccoli into florets and bite-size (1 1/2-inch) pieces of peeled stem. Add the broccoli to the pot and cook until crisp-tender, about 1 1/2 minutes. Strain in a colander.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the garlic, ginger and jalapeno and cook until the garlic is golden and fragrant, about 45 seconds. Add the broccoli, oyster sauce, vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon salt and toss to coat.
