Ingredients

12 oz yu choy (about 9 stalks)
2 tsp oyster sauce
1 tsp fish sauce
2 tbsp peanut or vegetable oil
2 tsp minced garlic
1/8 tsp ground white pepper

Directions

Trim 1/4-inch from the stem end of each yu choy stalk.  Cut the stalks in half lengthwise if 1/2-inch or more in diameter.  In a small bowl combine the oyster sauce and fish sauce.
 

Heat a large flat-bottomed wok (or large skillet) over high heat until a bead of water vaporizes within 1-2 seconds of contact.  Swirl in the oil, add the garlic, and stir-fry 10 seconds or until the garlic is fragrant.  Add the yu choy and stir-fry 30 seconds or until the pieces are lightly coated in the oil.  Sprinkle on the pepper and stir-fry 1 minute or until the leaves are just limp and the yu choy is bright green.  Add the oyster sauce mixture to the wok and stir-fry 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the yu choy is just crisp-tender.
