sesame broccoli

Sesame Broccoli

-1 tablespoon sesame oil
-2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
-pinch of red pepper flakes
-2 tablespoons of sugar
-2 tablespoons of soy sauce
-1 1/2 lbs. broccoli, chopped

To cheat and speed up the process I stuck the broccoli in the microwave (for 5 minutes) prior to stir frying to begin cooking, but this step could be easily eliminated.

Heat oil in wok over medium high heat, add broccoli, cook, stir often. Once broccoli is turning bright green combine remaining ingredients and pour into pan. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until desired tenderness is reached.
