Bok Choy in Oyster Sauce
I’m going for more veggies after gaining so much weight. So I have reduced rice in my diet and go for greens, fiber, while trying my best to be consistent at exercise. This dish is super easy and super fast. It helps me stick to the plan!
Nutrition Alert! Bok Choy also known as pak choi is high-fiber and packed with nutrients that can help you fight inflammation, reduce risks for heart disease, cancer, and is rich in calcium, folate and vitamin B6.*
Ingredients:6-7 stalks of Bok Choy
2 tsp Sesame oil
1 small ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp Reqado Garlic Lovers
2 tbsps oyster sauce
1 tsp ground Black Pepper
2 tsp vegetable oil
3 tbsps water
1 tsp honey
When slicing the Bok Choy, hold one stalk by hand and slice into 3-4 pieces per piece. The stem part should be sliced smaller compared to the leaves.
Cut 1/4 inch above from the root. Dispose the root part or use as compost.
Separate stem pieces from the leaves.Steps:
1. We will start by stir-frying the stem pieces first. Open stove to medium heat and then when warm, add Sesame Oil and let it soak in the heat for 10 seconds.
2. Add the stem pieces and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.
3. Remove from pan and set aside.
4. Use the same pan and then add vegetable oil.
5. Sauté garlic and ginger until aromatic. Then add Garlic Lovers and pepper. Let the spices soak in the oil and heat for 10-15 seconds.
6. Add the Oyster sauce and 3 tbsps water.
7. Cover the mixture and let it simmer over medium heat.
8. Add the honey and stir.
9. Open the lid and then add the stir-fried stem pieces and the leaves for 1-minute. Stir and let the sauces coat the Bok Choy.
10. Turn off the stove and transfer the Bok Choy into a dish.
Drizzle with more Sesame Oil if you like and top with Chili Flakes for a spicy kick!
Eat on its own (which I do) or with rice and other proteins.
Serve hot and enjoy!
