For this dish I used standard broccoli, but cut the majority of the stem off, using only a small floret, as you can see by the picture. For the sausage, I guess you can use whatever sausage you want, but I chose a medium spicy Italian style sausage. Casing removed and crumbled right into the hot oil. I found this gave the sausage pieces a nice crusty/crisp exterior while being fully cooked on the inside.

Marinades should be simple and this is no different. A little bit of soy sauce, some lemon zest, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and red chili flakes.

Broccoli Sausage Stir Fry Ingredients

2 links Italian Sausage.

300 grams Broccoli; florets. You can use the stems if you want, but I find that they don’t cook that well in a stir fry.

2 tbsp Soy Sauce

1 Lemon; zest of.

1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Red Chili Flakes

60 ml Sunflower Oil

1 tsp Sesame Seeds; white and black, or just white or black. Up to you. I cheated and used Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel Seasoning.

Broccoli Sausage Instructions

1. In a big bowl, make the marinade (all the ingredients except the broccoli and sausage, Sunflower oil, and Sesame Seeds). Add the broccoli to it and let it sit for just a few minutes.

2. While the broccoli is in the marinade, peel the casing off the Italian sausage. Break off small-ish pieces with your fingers and leave as a pile on a cutting board or plate.

3. In a skillet (or wok if you are using an open flame…and have a wok) add the oil and turn the flame/heat on max.

4. When the oil is up to temperature, add in the broccoli with all the marinade. It WILL sputter and steam and overall be a bit dangerous, but hey, that’s cooking. Shake the pan for about 10 seconds then add all the sausage. Shake the pan some more so all the sausage isn’t in a big clump. Cook until the sausage just begins to brown then turn off the flame. Using a slotted spoon/spider ladle move everything to a papertowel to get rid of the excess oil. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Serve the broccoli sausage stir fry hot as is, or over rice or with noodles.
