  1. Blanch the oyster mushrooms, tofu puffs, bamboo shoots and bean sprouts in boiling water for 30 to 60 seconds. Drain well.
  2. Firmly press the tofu puffs to release the greasy residue.
  3. Heat a large frying pan with 1 tablespoon oil over high heat. Stir-fry the garlic, spring onions and chilli until aromatic, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in the onion with salt and fry until soft, 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add the oyster mushrooms, tofu puffs, bamboo shoots and mix well. Stir in the oyster sauce, water, sesame oil, salt and sugar and stir well. Allow to heat through, 1-2 minutes. Stir in the bean sprouts and serve.


Tinned oyster mushrooms and fried tofu puffs can be found in Chinese/Oriental speciality stores. You can substitute in fresh oyster mushrooms, if you prefer.

Best Vegetables in Oyster Sauce

Crunchy stir fried vegetables in oyster sauce, this is such a popular Asian classic side dish… And a highly addictive one too because it is so rich, sweet and sticky. You will wish that you made much more of this stuff! You have been warned.

Magical vegetables in oyster sauce.

If this dish was a drug, then me and the hubs would have overdosed daily on it back when we were visiting Thailand.

We could easily order vegetables in oyster sauce 3 times a day, no kidding. This dish is so good that I even had it for breakfast several times.

Chinese Broccoli with Oyster Sauce

Real “restaurant style” Chinese Broccoli with Oyster Sauce is NOT just oyster sauce (despite what you will read in many recipes claiming it is that simple!).

A sauce made with just oyster sauce will just taste of that – plain oyster sauce dolloped on greens. And if you’re happy with that, then there’s no need to read further because this recipe for real Restaurant Style Chinese Greens with Oyster Sauce has more than 1 ingredient in the sauce!

What it tastes like – Steamed Chinese Broccoli tastes like broccolini stems with spinach leaves. Smothered in a sweet-savoury garlic ginger sauce that will make anything delicious, it’s no wonder this is the most popular vegetable dish at Yum Cha!

This is the steamed Chinese Greens dish that is pushed around in rattling trolleys at Yum Cha!

Tofu in Oyster Sauce

Feeling like going meatless for dinner? Try tofu in oyster sauce. With its thick sauce, rich flavor and the aroma of sesame seed oil, you won’t miss your meat.

Firm or semi-firm tofu is best for this dish so that you can pan fry it directly. If you use a soft variety like silken tofu, there are a few extra steps—like pressing excess water from the tofu and flouring it—to make the tofu easier to handle and to make sure that it will form a light crisp crust.

This tofu in oyster sauce is not vegan, is it? No, because of the oyster sauce. But this can be transformed into a vegan dish by simply substituting vegetarian oyster sauce which is made from oyster mushrooms.

Below, a video of my daughter Sam’s version of tofu in oyster sauce.

Bok choy in oyster sauce stir fry recipe


  • 4 bunches Bok Choy or you can use Broccoli to change things up
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3½ tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • 1 block tofu




Tried this recipe? Let us know how it was!

As always, make sure to buy the freshest Bok Choy to ensure the best-tasting dish.

Check if there are no dry parts or bites on the leaves. Of course, you also have to buy the best brand of oyster sauce. Bok Choy, on its own, is already a tasty vegetable.

You can even just steam it and it’s ready to eat.

But if you want a more special dish for your family or if you’re celebrating a special occasion, you should try this recipe and they will love it.

The sweet and distinct taste of oyster and the crispness of the half-cooked Bok Choy is more than worth trying.

Tofu in Garlic Sauce

You know those mornings when you wake up and suddenly realize that:

… have a long list of things to do and things to buy but not a piece of a thing to wear.

….you have one business e-mail…ONE! that you failed to send last night because you fell asleep right on the keyboard..

….and you wake up and find out you have keyboard marks all-over your face..

…and that you only slept for four hours last night…

…and aside from the fact that you have lots of things to do, you are running late for work.

You remember having one of those days?

I’m having one of them except I don’t have those keyboard marks on my face, hee. I made that one up.

I did fail to send an e-mail which is really important.

I usually eat a bag of cookies or m&m’s to turn these kinds of days around

but I don’t have a m&m’s and I have no time to make cookies…

Thank God for easy recipes like this which you can whip up in 15 minutes flat.

Kangkong and Tofu In Oyster Sauce

To be honest, Kangkong and Tofu In Oyster Sauce is really not one of the dishes that’s a regular in our menu rotation. That’s because tofu is one of those food items that I’m still trying to make Ykaie and Twinkle appreciate. BUT! because I’m trying to look for more ways to serve veggies and other healthy dishes, I’m slowly incorporating this to our meals.

Ako, personally, I love tofu — so I love love love this dish. It’s not only delicious, it’s healthy… and most of all budget-friendly. I think that’s what most mommies are looking for in a dish, right?

To cook this dish, I just sautéed everything together. I didn’t use onions because I’m avoiding it for the moment because of acid reflux but you can go ahead and add onions to garlic pag nag-gisa kayo. It’ll definitely make it more flavorful.

Tahu Goreng Saus Tiram: Fried Tofu with Oyster Sauce

  • Author: Deyana Goh
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1 x
  • Category: Tofu & Tempeh
  • Method: Frying
  • Cuisine: Indonesian
  • Diet: Gluten Free


This quick, easy and delicious recipe calls for tofu to be deep fried and then cooked with oyster sauce and soy sauce. It is easily made vegan and a joy to cook.


  • 1 block of firm tofu, 100g
  • 50g mustard leaves, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 red chillies, peeled and sliced
  • 2 bird’s eye chillies, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp sweet or dark soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp water
  • a dash of white pepper
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste


  1. Cut the tofu into 1 inch by 1 inch squares. Fry till golden, about 5 min. Set aside.
  2. Mix the oyster sauce and soy sauce with the 3 tbsp water. Set aside.
  3. In a wok or frying pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat.
  4. Add the garlic and chillies. Saute till fragrant, about 2 min.
  5. Add the mix of oyster sauce, soy sauce and water.
  6. Add a dash of pepper and salt. Remember to half the amount of salt you’d normally use, because the sauces contain salt.
  7. Stir until the sauce thickens, about 1-2 min.
  8. Add the tofu and mustard leaves. Stir fry for 3 min. Turn off the stove and serve.


  • For a healthier version, feel free to skip the pre-frying and use the tofu as is – that is, if you don’t mind scrambled tofu.
  • Feel free to use regular oyster sauce instead of the vegetarian version, of course!
