Oyster Sauce Vegetables with Fried Shallots

Oyster Sauce Vegetables

Check Out: Fried Shallots Recipe

This is a super easy Chinese greens recipe with oyster sauce (油菜), fried shallots and shallot oil. I love the fact that the vegetables cook really quickly (less than 30 seconds in boiling water) so you can just cook the greens right before you serve dinner, while preparing the oyster sauce mixture and the aromatic fried shallots + shallot oil before hand. I am using baby bok choy (xiao bai cai, 小白菜) here but you can also use other greens such as baby kailan to your liking.

    What a co-incidence! I just made it today upon my son’s request as xiao bai chai is his favourite. ;)

    Fried shallots and shallot oil is my go-to when I stir-fry vegetables and I don’t even miss the oyster sauce, seriously.

    Enjoy your vacation. :)

    Oh yes! with fresh fried shallots as well. You are so good in reminding me the classic.

    I love when you can take such simple ingredients and turn them into something that seems so out of the ordinary. Great recipe!

      Hi, I bought it from a neighbourhood shop (can’t remember which one) selling random Chinese utensils, cookware and cutlery.
