Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 15 mins

Total Time: 30 mins

Serves: 4


  • 450 gram (1 lb.) gailan, washed and cut into 2-inch bite-size pieces
  • 3 tablespoon mushroom sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoon oil, divided


  1. Blanch the vegetables. Boil a pot of salted water.
  2. Add gailan, and cook until al dente. If you prefer a tenderer green, feel free to add 1 minute past the al dente point.
  3. Drain with a colander really well. Make sure the vegetables are dry since any excess water will dilute our sauce. You can even use a salad spinner if you have one.
  4. Arrange the well-drained gailan on a serving platter.
  5. Prepare the mushroom sauce. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Swirl to coat the pan.
  6. Mix together all the sauce ingredients (mushroom sauce, sugar, water, ground white pepper), then pour into the hot pan. Once the sauce boils, pour over the arranged gailan.
  7. Fry the garlic. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, and swirl to coat. I usually just use the same pan for making the mushroom sauce.
  8. Add minced garlic and fry until golden brown. Quickly sprinkle the top of the arranged gailan with the fried garlic and oil. Serve immediately.
