Sesame-Shiitake Bok Choy


  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 2-pound head bok choy, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 4 c sliced shiitake mushroom caps (9 ounces with stems)
  • 2 tbsp oyster-flavored or oyster sauce (see Note)
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds (see Tip)


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

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