This is a recipe for the Chinese Broccoli dish that is one of the most popular vegetable dishes at Yum Cha (Dim Sum).

- 1 bunch Chinese broccoli (gai lan)

- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- Salt and pepper, to taste

- 2 tablespoons oyster sauce

- 1/4 teaspoon dried chili flakes (optional)

6. Stir-fry the Chinese broccoli for 2-3 minutes, or until it begins to wilt and turn bright green.
