Baby Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce

I don't know since when I got addicted to eating steamed vegetables with oyster sauce, perhaps thanks to all those times I frequented Dim Sum places for brunch with friends and family.
Often if I like a dish enough, I would search high and low for recipes to make them at home; as such Baby Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce is one of those dishes!

There are a few variations that I have tried and tested and  to be honest, I  them all.

Variation 1 is nice if you don't want it to be too saucy and of course for presentation, it looks better as well.
2 tbspns oyster sauce
3 tbspns chicken stock
2 tspns soy sauce
1 tspn sesame oil
4-5 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tspn corn flour (cornstarch), mixed with
1 tbsp (extra) chicken stock
1 bunch baby bok choy, bottoms trimmed, washed.
  1. Heat a small saucepan over high heat, add 1tbsp oil, fry the minced garlic until golden. Combine oyster sauce, stock, soy sauce, sesame oil and corn flour mixture.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring until sauce bubbles and thickens; remove from heat.
  3. Blanch bok choy in a saucepan of boiling water for about 1 minute; remove from pan with a slotted spoon and rinsed under cold running water. Drained.
  4. Pour oyster sauce over it and serve.

For Variation 2, I added in ¼ cup of oyster sauce instead of 2 tbspns to make it more saucy - just the way I like it!
