2 T. fish sauce
2 t. sugar
1 lb. broccoli florets
2 T. oil
4 large cloves garlic, chopped (not too fine)
Stir the fish sauce with the sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside. Drop the broccoli florets into a saucepan of boiling water. Cover and boil 2 to 3 minutes. Drain.
Heat the oil in a wok over medium heat. Add the garlic and fry until golden and crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel. Add the fish sauce mixture to the oil remaining in the pan. Add the broccoli and stir until blended with the seasonings and heated through. Turn out onto a heated platter and top with the fried garlic.
