Rachel’s approach to food is that it should be quick, fresh, healthy and straightforward. She likes to keep the ingredients simple so you are able to taste the original flavor of the food when it’s done. Rachael explains, “Broccoli should taste like broccoli, carrots like carrots, and fish should have the aroma and flavor it was created to have. Flavors should only enhance the food, not change it to be unrecognizable.” I like this approach. Once again, her wisdom speaks. However, it wasn’t until after tasting her version of stir-fry, that I discovered the pure magic in this style of cooking. To quote Rachael, “A half bottle of water makes the loudest noise.” You don’t need to add a dozen different ingredients to get the greatest taste. Sometimes simple is best.

I’m very honored to be able to feature Rachel and some her recipes in my upcoming cookbook under the chapter called China. But for now, I’m excited to share her Super Simple 6 minute Chinese Stir Fry recipe with you. There are only six basic ingredients in this dish but trust me, the flavor of this stir fry is anything but ordinary. Now, my family can finally enjoy Chinese food the way it is supposed to taste. No MSG, no preservatives, just amazing! Thanks, Rachel!

I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you’ve made it please share it with me by tagging @culinary.butterfly on Instagram or @culinarybutterfly on Pinterest, or by using the hashtag #culinarybutterfly on Facebook

  1. Heat wok or skillet over high heat, allowing pan to heat up before adding oil. Heat oil for 20 seconds.
  2. Add broccoli and saute 1-2 minutes until broccoli turns bright green. Add garlic and continue sautéing to combine.
  3. In a jar or container with a tight fitting lid, add chicken broth, oyster sauce, and cornstarch. Close lid tightly and shake liquid until contents are combined. Pour liquid over broccoli, stir to combine, cover pan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until broccoli is lightly tender.
  4. Transfer broccoli and sauce to a plate and serve with rice.
Recipe Notes

- I like to keep my stir fry simple, using only a few of my favorite ingredients so you can enjoy the flavor of the food itself, rather than a mix of flavors that take away from the fresh simpleness of a good, healthy stir fry.
