    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 tablespoons peanut oil or 2 tablespoons canola oil
    • 3 -4 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced (about 2 tablespoons)
    • 1 lb leafy greens, thick stems removed and large leaves roughly chopped
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • coarse salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • 2 small hot red chili peppers, thinly sliced and seeded if desired


    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Add a few handfuls of the greens, allow them to wilt slightly, then add more greens in the same manner. Toss well to coat with oil.
    2. 2
      Add the soy sauce, fish sauce and sugar; toss to combine.
    3. 3
      Raise the heat to medium-high and cook until the water released by the greens mostly evaporates, about 5 minutes. The greens are done when a little liquid still clings to the leaves and the stems are tender. Season with salt and black pepper to taste, sprinkle with chilies and serve.

      A nice recipe that is very easy to bring together. I made as written, but wish I'd cut the cooking time. My garlic was fully browned within 2 minutes, so 20-30 seconds would have been plenty. I think the leaves and my thinly sliced tender stems would have been done within 3 minutes. The balance of flavours is good. Thanks for posting.
