Notes

  • For a healthier stirfry, you can stifry your meat, tofu, seafood and vegetables with no oil - simply add a little hot water - Buy the smallest baby buk choy you can find. You could also use gai lan or ta gho (available from Asian greengrocers). -‘Vegetarian oyster sauce’ is made from blended mushrooms and soy sauce. It is available from health-food stores and some supermarkets. Most supermarkets stock mirin. If you can't find it use sweet white wine or sherry, instead.
