This pak choi with oyster sauce is a umami taste sensation. Crunchy and mouthwatering, it’s not only quick to make, but it’s healthy too!

The default recipe serves 2 as a side dish. Scale up as required using the buttons to the right.


Units Scale
  • 200g pak choi
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, very finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp water


  1. If you are using mature pak choi then cut most of the stems off until around 1 inch is remaining. If you are using baby leaves then simply cut the veg in half. Wash and drain.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and fry until light brown and crisp. Use a slotted spoon to remove and set aside.
  3. Add the pak choi to the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes until fully wilted. Turn every few seconds with some tongs to ensure it cooks evenly.
  4. Tip the oyster sauce into the pan with a splash of the water. Toss everything together and allow to bubble for around a minute to thicken the sauce. Add a splash more water if it starts to look dry.
  5. Use tongs to assemble the pak choi on a plate and then spoon over any remaining sauce in the pan. Scatter over the garlic and serve.


  1. If you don’t have any oyster sauce then light soy sauce also works.
  2. If you are a lover of ginger then add some ginger paste or grated ginger when you add the pak choi to the pan – it’s really yum! 
  3. Make sure to slice the garlic very thinly for maximum crunch!
