  1. Heat a wok over medium heat. Add oil and allow to get hot. Add garlic and stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add bok choy and cook for 30 seconds. Season with soy sauce, sugar, and salt and stir-fry for 1 minute.
  2. Pour water into the wok, cover, and simmer until leaves are dark green and stems are tender, but still firm, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, drizzle with sesame oil, and season with pepper.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can also use broth instead of water for extra flavor.
