Braised Bok Choy


1 Tbsp. canola oil
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
3/4 pound to 1 pound bok choy, washed and chopped into large chunks, stems and leaves separated
1/4 cup vegetable broth
2 Tbsp. minced garlic
1 Tbsp. oyster sauce (optional - a little extra soy sauce is fine)
1 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp. brown sugar



1. Heat the canola oil and sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Add grated ginger and cook 1 to 2 minutes, until ginger perfumes the oil.

2. Add bok choy to the skillet. Stir fry whites first, then add greens until the bok choy becomes bright green (NOT LONG!).

3. Remove bok choy to a serving bowl

4. Add broth, garlic, oyster sauce, soy sauce and brown sugar to the pan. Cook another 2 minutes or so to allow flavours to meld.

5. Pour over bok choy. Serve immediately.



Try this with any other Asian greens - it'll work with braising greens of various sorts. 

Best served over rice or other grain to absorb the juices

Add ground pork or sliced sausage (fried before the pak choy gets added)

Makes ~4 servings.
