I simply love Gai Lan. It is one of the best veggies I've ever had. I have found it at Chinese and Vietnamese markets, but usually I get it at the China Market near my house. It's bitter so en...

Great combination of flavors for Gai Lan. I didn't boil it, just sauted in a bit of oil before adding the sauce. I added a cubed small kohlrabi as well.

I like to use this sauce to toss not only Gai Lan, but also broccoli or green beans. It makes a flavorful veggie side for any asian meat & steamed rice dish. I find that half the sauce is plen...

Yum. Next time I think I'll add a bit more garlic and some crushed red pepper. My DH wanted to give it 10 stars.

This was good, but something tasted a little off to me. There are other asian inspired veggie recipes I like better.
