For my dinners, a green leafy vegetable dish is a must and 'yow choy' is always one of the dishes. Garlic oil is used, so i have a huge bowl of garlic oil ever ready .
3 big stalks of Shanghai Siew Pak Choy(cut and wash
3 tbsp of garlic oil (how to make a bowl of garlic oil)
3 tbsp of oyster sauce
Arrange washed vegetables on a microwavable dish, the leaves in the center and the stalks around the sides of dish.
Pour in garlic oil
Microwave on high covered with splatter or cling wrap (leave a vent) for 3 1/2 mins for crunchy vegetables and if you like softer vegetables, microwave another 1/2 min.
Add oyster sauce before serving.
To make garlic oil:
In a microwavable bowl, put in 1/4 cup of chopped/minced garlic and 1/2 cup of cooking oil.
Microwave on high for 1 minute at a time, stir every minute and continue to microwave until garlic is slightly brown. The garlic will continue to brown. (This process should not be more than 3 minutes if you are having a microwave with 1000 - 1300 watts. Do no leave to answer the phone or door, watch the color of the garlic and open door of microwave if you find that they are slightly brown.)
Cool and store in jar.
