How to Stir Fry Any Vegetable – Three Basic Flavors and Recipes (蒜蓉炒西兰花/姜汁炒芥兰/虾酱炒通心菜)

DESCRIPTION

Broccoli with Garlic, Gai Lan with Ginger Sauce, and Morning Glory with Shrimp Paste and Chilis – we’ll be using these three dishes to illustrate three flavor profiles that you can apply to almost any vegetable.

Stir-fried greens are an important part of any Chinese meal, and are a quick and easy thing to whip up as a side dish. When learning how to cook these, it’s best to think in terms of ‘technique’ and ‘flavor profile’. If you guys like this sort of thing, let us know and we can do another video one day with three more flavor profiles.

As always, the detailed recipes and a discussion on other vegetables/flavor profiles are over here on /r/cooking:

    Hey, so let us know what vegetables you're usually working with around where you live. Asparagus? Kale? If it's a green that's common in China we can shoot you a brief recipe, and if not we should still be able to give some ideas 🙂

    We don’t usually blanch the vegetables or at least in my home… we just put the stem in first then veggie part to stir fry…

    I knew I was missing out on something with my simple soy sauce, rice wine based sauce. Now I can make more veg dishes in a single meal by changing the sauces!

    Here is how I know I watch too many of these videos and procrastinate when it comes to actually making the dish.

    I was cooking recently and under my breath I reminded myself to "Longyau, get that wok piping hot" while I waited for my flying pan to heat up.

    I was making cabbage rolls.

    Hi, would Thai shrimp paste do the trick for the last one?
    And also, what would work best with pumpkin?

    I know my mom never used a salad spinner but does it help to add dried vegetables into the hot wok with oil?

    For the basic veg sauce, I didn't have cornstarch on hand so used potato starch instead. My sauce ended up gloopy and gelatinous as soon as it hit the wok. Is this simply an issue of potato starch not holding up to the high temperature as well as cornstarch? I've read they are basically interchangeable so was surprised to see this happen.

    I once tried "楊桃" channel recipe and blanched Taiwanese Cabbage. The worst mistake ever. The blanching washed away all the natural sweetness from the vegetables. Try steaming instead of blanching. Taste better and more nutritious.

    I’m really not sure if it’s really called morning glory? Shouldn’t it be water spinach?

    If anyone else is stuck without access to asian markets in the US, one of my favorite preparations for bok choy / spinach / broccoli is with garlic, chili, oyster sauce and fish sauce. I’ve found nearly every Kroger-like grocery carries an oyster sauce / chili in oil and you can get nice tasting fish sauce for relatively cheap online!
