Foodie Friday: Sauteed Young Corn and Broccoli

First Friday of the month:  Mom-Cook / Recipe

I am taking a break from meats and sharing you this easy-peasy veggie dish for the whole family. You still have the option to mix beef strips using the same recipe. When I am extra lazy, I simply sauté  only the broccoli in garlic, hehehehe... but this one is definitely more tasty!

Keeping this post short and simple so we can all enjoy the weekend. Here you go:


1 medium head of broccoli
1/2 can of young corn
2 tablespoons chopped button mushrooms
1 tablespoon minced garlic
3 - 4 tablespoons oyster sauce
1/4 cup water
black pepper 
sesame oil
cooking oil

To prepare:
Boil water in a small pot or saucepan.
Trim and cut broccoli to bite-size pieces, keeping florets whole, or sliced in two if too big.
Blanche broccoli in rolling boiling water for about 2 minutes.
Drain liquid from the can of young corn and slice diagonally. 
Drain blanched broccoli.
Set aside veggies.

To cook:
Heat pan and add enough oil to sauté the garlic.
Add oyster sauce and pour water little by little until your desired thickness of the sauce. Adjust to your taste.
Toss in broccoli, young corn, mushrooms in the pan. Cook over low heat.
Add some ground pepper and a few drops of sesame oil (go easy on sesame oil).
Mix well or until all veggies are well coated in sauce. 
You can add more oyster sauce if you like.

Serve immediately. This meatless dish works very well as a rice topping or mixed with cooked egg noodles! Instant Chinese meal! =)
