Stir-Fried Sesame Baby Bok Choy

ingredients

  • 1/2 pound baby bok choy
  • 1 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 teaspoons sesame oil

procedure

dish: side
season: spring

Trim and discard bottoms from the baby bok choy. Separate the leaves, rinse, and pat dry. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, rice wine, and sugar. Set aside. Heat wok over medium-high heat until a bead of water sizzles and evaporates on contact. Add the peanut oil and swirl to coat the bottom and sides. Add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry until aromatic, 20 to 30 seconds. Add the bok choy and stir-fry for about 2 minutes, until crisp-tender. Add the soy sauce mixture and cook for another 30 seconds. Turn off the heat, and drizzle with sesame oil. Transfer to a serving plate and serve hot.
