Total Time: 25 mins

Serves: 4


  • 300 gram baby bok choy (or any greens)
  • salt
  • Oyster sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon oil
  • 2 tablespoon oyster sauce (or mushroom sauce for vegetarian option)
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 dash ground pepper
  • Garlic oil
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced


  • Bok choy
    1. Wash and drain the bok choy to remove grit and dirt. Drain and set aside.
    2. Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil. Salt generously, and add the bok choy. Once the water boils again and the bok choy turns a brighter shade of green. Start testing to see if it is crispy and tender to your liking. Once you like the texture (please, please don't let them boil for more than 3 minutes or you will end up with wimpy limpy bok choy), drain and place on a serving plate. Set aside. (Or you can shock in ice water first, then drain again and place on a serving plate).
  • Oyster sauce
    1. Heat oil in a frying pan. Add oyster sauce, water, sugar, and ground white pepper. Stir until the sauce bubbles. Turn off heat and pour the sauce on the bok choy.
  • Garlic oil
    1. Give the frying pan a quick clean. Heat the oil and stir fry the garlic until fragrant and garlic turns golden brown. Turn off heat and pour the garlic oil onto the bok choy. Serve immediately.
