- 1 tbsp oil
- 2 cups boiling water
- 8 dried shiitake mushrooms, sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 500 gm Bok choy, (approx 4 bunches) washed and cut into quarters lengthwise
- 3 tbsp oyster sauce
- 2 tsp Chinese cooking wine
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp reserved mushroom soaking water
- 2 tsp water
- 1 tsp cornstarch
Wash the mushrooms with water then soak the shiitake mushroom in 2 cups of just-boiled water for 1 hour.
Prepare all your ingredients and the thickener.
Combine the sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside until needed.
In a fry pan on medium heat, add the garlic and fry for 20 seconds.
Add the sliced mushrooms and the sauce to the pan. Allow to cook for 4 minutes.
Turn the heat up to medium high and add the bok choy to the pan and cover with a lid. After 1 minute, gently flip the greens over and cook for another minute.
Take the lid off and check if the greens are about 90% done. If not, let it cook further.
Once 90% done, give the cornstarch mixture a stir and add it to the pan. Stir until thickened.
Serve with rice.
