Saute Baby Buk Choy with Fresh Garlic
This is a nastily easily vegetable dish to cook when I lost my cooking pants. It is also an easily tasty dish to complete a meal. Like other Asian nation, the Thai way of eating doesn't come as a course. Each meal, all the the food will be served at once on the table and we will eat them together. The taste of each individual dish usually complements each other. We will have vegetable dish, meat dish, soup or curry dish and fired dish to eat together.
And this saute baby Buk Choy is another excellent choice of vegetable dish to put on the table. I made a bigggg pot of beef Massaman curry, which will last us long for a week. All I have to do for each meal is to cook a small and easy vegetable dish to go along with a yummy curry.
You will need
- 2 cloves of fresh garlic, crushed
- 2 Buk Choy, cut into half
- 1 tbsp. Oyster sauce or soy sauce
- crushed black pepper
- 2 tbsp. oil for saute
- 2 tbsp. water
1. Cut Buk Choy into half, clean them thoroughly, blot them with paper towel, so they don't splash when hitting the hot pan.
2. Heat up the pan until it is very hot, drizzling in the oil.
3. Put crushed garlic, saute to smell, in go Buk Choy.
4. Season them with oyster sauce or soy sauce, give them a quick stir, add a little bit of water, sprinkle with black pepper, turn off the heat.
5. Put them into your mouth :)
