Bok Choy in Oyster Sauce and Garlic Oil

I always planned to have green during Chinese New Year meal, and bok choy is one of them. It's simple to prepare and goes well with oyster and garlic sauce. It's good to have balance when the feast consist mainly of meat and seafood.

Bok Choy in Oyster Sauce and Garlic Oil
Ingredients (for 4 persons)
  • One bag of bok choy ( typically about 5-6 plants-sliced the plant in half)
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce (Lee Kum Kee brand preferred)
  • 1 tsp of light soya sauce
  • dash of pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp of vegetable oil
  1. Prepare the garlic oil by frying the garlic in 1 tbsp of vegetable oil. Fry till lightly brown and crisp.
  2. Boil water in a pot/wok. Add 1/4 teaspoon of vegetable oil to the water, this will help retain the nice green of your vegetable. Once boiling, blanched the bok choy quickly, don't over cook them. Drain in a colander and transfer the vegetable to a plate.
  3. Mixed well the garlic oil, light soya sauce and oyster sauce together.
  4. Then drip it over the bok choy and ready to serve.

I just did this for lunch today. Really nice with the sause dripped over :-) I found it quite difficult to make at the same time as my fried egg sandwich's though... need to practice my multitasking skills...
