1. Prepare a pot of water to boil. Make sure it has enough water so that the bok choy can be submerged.
2. In the meantime, wash your bok choy and slice into halves. If you're using regular or bigger bok choy, then quarter them or slice into more bite-sized, long pieces. See video above for reference.
3. Slice peeled garlic into 1/4 inch slices.
4. Prepare your stir fry sauce by mixing 1 tsp cornstarch, 1 tsp oyster sauce, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp white pepper, and 3 tbsp water.
5. Prepare an ice bath by putting ice cubes and cold water in a large bowl.
6. Add 1 tbsp of neutral oil to the boiling water (this helps preserve the green color of the bok choy). Add in your bok choy and submerge them under the boiling water.
7. Blanch for about 90 seconds. If your bok choy has a really thick core, you may need to increase this by 30 seconds, but you shouldn't blanch for more than 2 minutes.
8. After 90 seconds, drain the bok choy and put them in the ice bath. This preserves the bright green color of the vegetable and also prevents it from overcooking.
9. Heat up a wok or pan to medium high heat. Once warm, add oil and sliced garlic and stir fry for 1 min or until lightly golden.
10. Drain the bok choy and add to the hot pan. Season with a small pinch of salt and add the stir-fry sauce.
11. Toss to coat the bok choy in the sauce, then stir-fry for another 2 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Serve immediately for the best results!
