Ginger and Garlic Braised Bok Choy

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

I absolutely love Bok Choy, and although a completely foreign vegetable, it takes extremely well to growing in my vegetable garden! There are so many ways to make the best of this great vegetable, and for me, more often than not, it ends up as a regular ingredient to a quick and tasty stir fry, with lots of other fresh veggies. This braised Bok Choy recipe is a fantastic way to enjoy it, making it a perfect side dish to any main Chinese meal.

Serves 2
4 bok choy, sliced in quarters
1 tablespoon of sunflower oil
1 clove of garlic, sliced thinly
A thumb sized piece of ginger, sliced thinly
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoons of sesame oil
1 teaspoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of oyster sauce

Heat a wok over a high heat, add the oil to coat.  Add the garlic and ginger and stir fry for 30 seconds.

Add the bok choy and stir fry for 1 minute.  Sprinkle over the sugar, and pour in 60ml of water, toss everything to combine.

Bring the wok to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer covered for 3 minutes or until the bok choy is tender.

Finally add the sesame oil and oyster sauce, stir it through until everything is coated and serve straight away.
