Chinese Broccoli (Gai Lan) & Beef
Chinese broccoli is also referred to as gai lum, kailaan, white-flowering broccoli, Chinese kale or gai lan. It is similar to regular broccoli, but milder in taste and grown on a longer stalk. Its texture when raw or cooked is the same as regular broccoli, making it ideal to use raw in salads, steam cooked as a side dish, as an ingredient in a vegetable stir-fry, a meat stir-fry, or added to other cooked dishes.
