Matt-Cyn Farms Spicy Bok Choy Stir-Fry

Boy choy is one of our favorite greens (both to grow and to eat!), and this delicious stir-fry incorporates plenty of garlic and spice. This recipes is super easy to whip up. Try serving it as a side dish, or as a bed of greens under grilled meat or tofu.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large head of bok choy
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 cloves garlic (or more), minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  •  Pinch of crushed hot red pepper flakes

Instructions:

Wash bok choy, trim ends, and chop, keeping white stems separate from the green leaves, as the stells will need to cook longer. Set both aside.

In a small bowl, stir together the water, ginger, garlic, oyster sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar and red pepper flakes, and then set aside.

Pour oils into wok on medium-high heat. Add white stems to oil and stir-fry until the pieces start to turn a pale green. When the stems are almost cooked, add the leaves; stir-fry until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer bok choy to a serving bowl. Pour the sauce into the wok, still set on medium-high heat. Cook, stirring constantly until sauce has thickened slightly, about 3 minutes. Pour sauce over the bok choy and toss lightly to coat. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
