Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce. Have you ever wish to know how to cook those delicious blanched vegetables with oyster sauce served at Chinese restaurants? The cooking method is not as complicated as it seems. In fact it is so simple that a newbie cook can do it. There are two stages of cooking. These involve blanching the vegetables and cooking the sauce. The vegetables should not be overcooked to retain its crispiness and vibrant color. Adding a few drops of oil to the blanching water will help retain the vibrant color of the vegetables. Here is the recipe of my restaurant style Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce.
