Broccoli in Hoisin Sauce

Summer is such a great time for a stir-fry. Fresh in-season vegetables scream ‘stir-fry me’ out at you as you walk through the farmer’s market or grocery store. In fact, a few heads of broccoli where screaming at me the other day, so I took them home and made a quick stir fry with broccoli in Hoisin sauce.

Hoison sauce adds a nice sweet and salty flavor to any veggies. Don’t be afraid to also add a few pinches of dried red pepper flake or fresh sliced chile peppers.
Broccoli in Hoisin SauceI love stir-frying broccoli in Hoisin sauce. I love it even more when cooked outside. I fire up my charcoal grill which has a fantastic, large wok insert. The wok gets incredibly hot over the coals, much hotter than I could ever get it on my flattop electric stove. It’s perfect for stir-frying anything, and quickly. If you have a 22″ Weber charcoal grill I can’t recommend the wok enough.

Also check out one of my other favorite grilled side dishes, Asian grilled vegetables. Stir-fried broccoli is also fantastic with my Mongolian Grill stir-fry sauce.
