Bok choy's mellow flavor goes beautifully with earthy shiitake mushrooms in this quick stir-fry. Be sure to use toasted rather than plain sesame oil--it has a superior nutty flavor. For a little heat, add a pinch of crushed red pepper.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant but not browned, 30 seconds. Add bok choy and mushrooms; cook, stirring, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Continue cooking, stirring often, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes more. Stir in oyster sauce, sesame oil and salt. Garnish with sesame seeds.



Note: Oyster sauce is a richly flavored condiment made from oysters and brine. Vegetarian oyster sauces substitute mushrooms for the oysters. Both can be found in large supermarkets or at Asian specialty markets.

Tip: To toast sesame seeds: Cook in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.

Delicious I was amazed by how delicious this was. I made it as per the recipe and added some cubes of extra firm tofu that I fried until golden and soaked in soy sauce before mixing everything together. Also I used rehydrated shiitakes and threw some chopped green onions on top. Pros: delicious healthy easy Read More

Was perfect addition I made this with portabello mushrooms and used fish sauce (didn't have any oyster sauce handy). Had it with grilled salmon and rice noodles and it was perfect meal for me. First time making bok choy. Read More
