Notes

Try to choose mushrooms with thicker flesh and are shiny black in colour.
To make the mushroom flesh smoother and velvety, you can actually rub the mushroom with a bit of cornflour. Set aside for about 10 minutes before rinsing.
To make the mushrooms shiny, try adding a small piece of rock sugar into the braising liquid.
You can choose to put the blanched broccoli florets into a bowl of ice water to stop the broccoli from continuously cooking and keep the colour vibrant.
Use lower temperature for longer time when braising the mushrooms.
 
(Optional): Mix sauce ingredients in a bowl and cook in pot until sauce thickened. Pour the warm sauce over the dish and serve immediately.
