  • 4 Heads of baby boy choy, bottoms trimmed and cabbage washed
  • 1 Tbsp. Canola oil
  • 2 Cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 Tbsp. Fresh ginger, finely minced
  • 3 Tbsp. Oyster sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. Soy sauce
  • 2 Tsp. Seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1/2 Tsp. Toasted Sesame oil
  • 1/8 Tsp. Confectioners sugar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 Tsp. Toasted sesame seeds


  • Wash the boy choy to remove loose dirt and shake dry. (some moisture is fine) Remove some of the hard, bottom of the base leaving the bok choy in tact. If any heads are large, cut them in half. Put to the side
  • Make the dressing by mixing the oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and sugar in a small bowl. Taste. Add salt and pepper to taste (usually a pinch of both). Put to the side.
  • Heat the tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the ginger and garlic and stir for about a minute to get fragrant. Add the boy choy and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook flipping over occasionally until the bottom stem portion is cooking but still crisp. About 5 minutes. Add a tablespoon or two of water to keep the pan steaming (to help cook the bok choy) and to prevent the garlic and ginger from burning. Don’t let the pan get dry. Cook for another 3-5 minutes.
  • When tender and cooked through, remove from the pan and put on a serving platter. Drizzle the sauce over the vegetables and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Taste. If needed, add more salt and pepper. Enjoy.
