I loved broccoli when I was a kid.  Broccoli was more expensive compare to other veggies.  Maybe that’s the reason I like it, I liked anything that is expensive. LOL.  I seldom order broccoli at a Chinese restaurant.  They usually under cook it, and make it too hard.  The cafeteria at work would over cook it, which is also yucky.   Ya, I know, I told you I’m picky.  Alright, here is an easy recipe to cook Broccoli chinese style.
