Broccoli with Oyster Sauce

I think we all know we should be eating more vegetables. At least I know my family needs to eat more of them. But they get boring after awhile. We get tired of the same plain vegetables over and over. Because of this I am always trying to find more interesting ways to serve them. So, when I saw this recipe in an Everyday Food magazine I knew I wanted to give it a try.

Not only did this help make broccoli interesting, it goes great with Asian style food. Many times I serve something that has an Asian sauce or style to it and I have trouble coming up with a side dish or vegetable to serve with it. Now I can turn to this recipe.

Sorry for the picture, broccoli just does not photograph well.

  1. Sounds lovely! I’ve never used oyster sauce, but I’m sure its a great addition =D.

  2. Pshaw! Your broccoli looks wonderful–I can taste it right now! I think this is a fabulous idea–I’m always looking for ways to perk up veggies as well. This is my favorite thing to do with green beans, if you’re interested: http://reciperhapsody.wordpress.com/2010/01/02/italian-green-beans/ and something similar with peas: http://reciperhapsody.wordpress.com/2009/04/04/marissas-good-peas/. Thanks for this great recipe!

  3. My kids love broccoli with cheese sauce but that gets OLD – they (well really me but they are good sports) love Asian food I can’t wait to try this out.

  4. I’ve done this before (add beef for a beef and broccoli dinner!) It’s pretty much the only reason I keep Oyster Sauce! Very good when we are craving Chinese!
