1 lb kai lan aka chinese broccoli
2 tbsp oyster sauce
4 tbsp garlic oil
Clean kai lan by removing the hardy outer stem using a vegetable peeler.

Make garlic oil, by chopping up several cloves of garlic, put them in a bowl and top with cooking oil. Microwave a minute at a time until garlic is slightly golden. The garlic will continue to cook in the hot oil, so do not wait until the garlic turns brown)

When the water is in high boil, add in the kai lan.
Cook until the kai lan turns green and tender.
