Fried Broccoli

Sauce:

1/2 cup malt vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon Chile flakes, more to taste

In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, soy sauce, sugar and chile flakes and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring once or twice. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. This makes about 3/4 cup sauce, more than is needed for the remainder of the recipe; the sauce will keep for up to 2 weeks, refrigerated.

Fried broccoli:

Oil for frying
1 pound broccoli, cut into florets (save the stems for another use)
About 1/4 cup prepared sauce, more if desired
Thinly sliced green onion, for garnish

Directions:

Fill a large pot with enough oil to come up about 4 inches and heat the oil until it reaches 375 degrees. Fry the broccoli, in small batches until the pieces are a light brown color, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Drain the pieces well, and repeat until all of the broccoli is fried.

Place the broccoli in a bowl and sprinkle the sauce over it, tossing the broccoli to coat. Drain the pieces and place on a platter, garnishing with the green onion. Serve immediately.

Serves 2-4
