  4. 1 Tbsp (15 mL) cornstarch
  5. 2 Tbsp water
  6. 1 1/2 Tbsp (20 mL) oil
  7. 1 1/2 lb (750 g) broccoli, flowerets removed, slice on the diagonal into thin slices
  8. 1 cup (250 mL) cooking oil
  9. 2 1/2 Tbsp (30 mL) oyster sauce
  10. 2 Tbsp (25 mL) light soy sauce

  12. 1 Tbsp (15 mL) sugar
  13. a few drops of sesame oil
  14. 2 cloves garlic, crushed

  16. 2 Tbsp cornstarch (if desired)
