Ingredients

1/4 cup dried shiitake mushrooms

1 1/2 pounds bok choy, trimmed

1/4 cup peanut oil

3 cloves garlic, minced, optional

1 cup fresh shiitake mushrooms, cleaned, trimmed and sliced

1/2 to 3/4 cup commercial oyster sauce

Directions

  1. Soak shiitakes in 1 cup very hot water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid. Trim mushrooms and chop. Separate leaves and stems of bok choy; cut stems into 2-inch lengths and slice leaves into ribbons.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. When oil is hot, add bok choy stems, garlic, if using, reconstituted mushrooms, and about 1/4 cup reserved mushroom water.
  3. Cook, stirring frequently, until stems are crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small skillet heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil; saute fresh shiitake mushrooms over medium-high heat. Continue cooking until they begin to brown and crisp on edges.
  5. Into the large skillet or wok, add bok choy leaves and oyster sauce and toss vegetables gently to combine; continue cooking until greens wilt, about 2 more minutes. Serve immediately, topped with crisp mushrooms.
