Chinese Style Squid & Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce

Chinese Style Squid & Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce

Simple and delicious! Even bok choy, which doesn't soak up flavor easily, can be made into a perfect dish when combined with flavorful oyster sauce and squid.

Ingredients: 2 servings

as needed (1)
Bok choy
1 plant
White part of a Japanese leek
optional, to taste
as needed
Oyster sauce
2 tablespoons
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
Weipa or Chinese chicken soup stock
optional, to taste
1 tablespoon
Sesame oil
1 teaspoon


1. Cut the squid into bite-sized pieces. Cut off the hard bottom of the bok choy and cut in half.
2. If using leek, julienne it thinly and soak in water.
3. Heat the oil in the frying pan and stir-fry the stalk of the bok choy over medium heat.
4. Add the squid and sprinkle in the sake. When the squid curls or when they have been cooked halfway through, add the bok choy leaves.
5. If using weipa (Chinese seasoning) or chicken stock granules, add about 1/2 teaspoon (adjust according to taste).
6. Once the bok choy has become tender and the squid has been cooked through, add the oyster sauce and cook briefly. Mix in some soy sauce and sesame oil to finish.
7. If available, garnish with the julienned leek.
