Serves:

4 (recipe yields 3/4 cup of sauce which means you'll have leftovers of it)

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

SAUCE:

1/2 c
malt vinegar
1/4 c
soy sauce
1/4 c
sugar
1/2 tsp
chile flakes

FRIED BROCCOLI:

oil, suitable for high heat frying
1 lb
fresh broccoli, cut into florets

GARNISHES:

green onion, thinly sliced
fresh cilantro or thai basil? (my suggestion)
sesame seeds ( " )
crispy shallots ( " )

Directions Step-By-Step

1
SAUCE: In a small saucepan, combine the malt vinegar, soy sauce, sugar and chile flakes; bring to a boil over high heat, stirring once or twice. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. (This makes about 3/4 cup sauce, more than is needed for the remainder of the recipe; the sauce will keep for up to 2 weeks, refrigerated.)
2
FRIED BROCCOLI: Fill a large pot with enough oil to come up about 4 inches and heat the oil until it reaches 375 degrees. Fry the broccoli, in small batches until the pieces are a light brown color, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Drain the pieces well. (I used far less oil-perhaps only about 1" depth.)
3
Place the broccoli in a bowl and sprinkle over the sauce, tossing the broccoli to coat. Drain the pieces and place on a platter, garnishing with the green onion... (fresh cilantro or Thai basil, sesame seeds, crispy shallots, etc. if desired.) Serve immediately.
