tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Roughly chop the Chinese broccoli. Roughly chop the peanuts. Peel and mince the garlic and ginger. Slice the chives into ½-inch pieces. Cut off and discard the stems of the mushrooms; thinly slice the caps. To make the sauce, in a small bowl, combine the Chinese cooking sherry, cornstarch, ¼ cup of water and as much of the soy sauce as you’d like, tasting as you go. (You may have extra soy sauce.)

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of oil on medium until hot. Add the mushrooms and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until browned and softened.

Add the Chinese broccoli; cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Transfer the cooked vegetables to a plate. Wipe out the pan.
