This easy bok choy recipe is perfect for busy weeknights. The trick is to have all the ingredients on hand and to stir-fry quickly so that the garlic doesn't burn (adding the water or chicken broth helps also).
- 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil (canola is good) or peanut oil, for stir-frying
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 pound bok choy, stalks cut diagonally and leaves cut across in 1 - 1 1/2 inch pieces
- Pinch of red pepper flakes, chili paste or chili powder (optional)
- 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- Salt to taste (I used less than 1/4 teaspoon)
- 1/4 cup water or chicken broth
- Asian Sesame oil, to taste (we used 1/2 teaspoon)
- Freshly ground black or white pepper, to taste
Heat wok and add oil. When the oil is ready, add garlic and chili paste, chili powder or red pepper flakes if using and stir-fry briefly, for about 30 seconds, until the garlic is aromatic.
Add the bok choy, adding the stalks first, and then the leaves.
Stir in the soy sauce, sugar, and salt, and stir-fry on high heat for 1 minute.
Add the water or chicken broth, cover the wok and simmer for about 2 to 3 minutes, until the leaves are dark green and the stalks are tender but not too soft.
