DIRECTIONS

  • Heat wok until it smokes.
  • Add oil and heat until it shimmers and is about to start smoking.
  • Add ginger and garlic, stir fry until very fragrant, about forty seconds.
  • Add choy sum all at once, and stir fry very vigorously; water will escape from the greens immediately.
  • Add remaining ingredients, including water chestnuts if you are using them, and stir and fry until the leaves are wilted and the stems are just starting to wilt.
  • Immediately remove from heat and scrape into a heated serving platter and serve right away.
