Made this with "General Tso's Tofu" (vegan version)... substituted a tiny bit of soy sauce for the fish sauce. Came out really well. Next time, I'll double the recipe and use leftovers for a stirfry/fried rice.

  1. Put wok or large skillet over maximum heat, and add oil.
  2. When oil smokes, add garlic.
  3. Stir once, and add the bok choy.
  4. Cook for a minute or two until it just begins to brown.
  5. Then stir, and add shiitakes and sugar.
  6. Cook, stirring occasionally, a minute or two, and add the chicken stock and fish sauce.
  7. Cook, stirring, until the bok choy is tender.
  8. Add a bit more stock or water if necessary — the mixture should not dry out entirely.
