This Asian broccoli stir fry is very quick and easy to make, and has SO much flavour! The whole family will love it!
This Asian broccoli stir fry is one of my favourite ways to cook broccoli. It’s quick, it’s easy, and I always have all the ingredients on hand.
And as much as I love simple steamed broccoli, it’s nice to switch it up every now and then!
This broccoli stir fry has so much flavour in the sauce, and is fantastic as a side dish with any meal that has Asian flavours.
Although I have definitely been known to cook it up with pretty much any meal that needs a side. It doesn’t need to be an Asian themed meal for me to enjoy this broccoli stir fry.
The sauce is so tasty, and it mixes up in just minutes. 10 minutes is really all you need to make this broccoli stir fry.

Do you have to boil broccoli before stir frying?
You don’t have to boil broccoli before stir frying it.
If you boil your broccoli first, you will likely end up with over cooked broccoli.
When it’s stir fried, broccoli is not cooked until it’s soft and mushy. Instead, stir fry it just until it is tender crisp.
It should still have some crispness to it when stir fried properly.
However, if you like your broccoli more well done, feel free to continue cooking for a couple minutes after it reaches the tender crisp stage!
How to make Asian Broccoli Stir Fry:
- If you don’t have any hoisin sauce on hand, oyster sauce is a good substitute in this recipe.
- The flavour of the soy sauce is obvious in this sauce, so make sure you’re using a soy sauce that you like. I find some of them are much saltier than others.
- Make this a complete meal by adding some protein to it – beef, chicken, and shrimp are all great. Double the sauce if you’re doing this so there is enough.

I like this recipe it was easy to make my family love it

I had some broccoli that needed to be used (before gone bad), I found your recipe, I replaced the hoisin sauce with oyster sauce (as you mentioned in the comments), and my husband and I absolutely love it! first, super simple to make. Second, all ingredients are kind of easy to already have at home (at least I already had all of them), and third, super tasty. The sauce flavour reminded me of a Chinese restaurant Mongolian beef dish that my family and I used to love, and my grandmother tried replicating it without much luck. Luckily for me, I got the flavour that my family has tried to replicate for years (no kidding)!

sadly i even used half of the broccoli recommended and still didn't have enough sauce. i'd also recommend adding ginger and red pepper flakes for some spice! my bf still ended up loving what came out :)
