Chinese vegetable v. 3 (Damn You!)

When we eat in a Chinese restaurant, Tito O likes to order this vegetable which he calls "damn you." Dou Miao or snow pea shoots is a wonderful vegetable that has a sweet, nutty flavor. It tastes best when quickly stir fried with garlic but today I decided to vary the prep a little.

For this dish, you will need 4-5 handfuls of snow pea shoots, washed and drained well.

For the sauce, stir the following together and set aside:

  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 5 tbsp. oyster sauce
  • 2 heaping tsp. crab paste in soya oil

Saute garlic in wok. Add snow pea shoots. Add sauce and stir fry until shoots are done but still crisp.
