Those Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce (Chinese mini leafy cabbage) with a peanut bite to it is a great side dish to any Asian meal or just by itself with some rice. Healthy, simple and tasty!

This is such an easy side dish or appetizer to make, nothing easier and it’s simply a nice fresh bite into a bunch of vitamins. We all have those moments we need to refill our energy levels with some nice crunchy veggies, this dish will do just that. Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce is a traditional Chinese/Cantonese side dish. Some blanchir the bok choy, and others… like me steam them in the wok. Some places call the vegetable by its Cantonese name which is bok choy (more precisely; baak choi), others call them Pak Choi, Pak Choy or Buk Choi which means “white vegetable”.

Preparation of Bok Choy

side dish cabbage

Before cooking them, start by soaking them with a touch of vinegar for a few minutes just to make sure they are clean.  Those small Chinese cabbages are loaded with vitamins and health benefits. Another important element of this dish is not to overcook the Bok choy. They need to be still crunchy and bright green, since overcooking them would turn them brownish and saggy. It also prevents them from losing all their nutrients and vitamins.
