Side dishes don’t get much speedier than this Stir-Fried Lettuce with Oyster Sauce and Garlic by Australian chef Rosheen Kaul. “Lettuce is a fantastic vegetable for stir-frying,” she says. “It’s a Chinese restaurant classic and can sometimes even be found shredded in fried rice. Here, it’s coated in an umami-rich sauce.” Stir-fry the leaves quickly on a high heat so the lettuce keeps its colour. It makes a great match for Rosheen’s  Red-Braised Pork Belly and Eggs.

Share recipe


  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, crushed or grated
  • 1 head of lettuce, such as romaine, iceberg or little gem, larger leaves torn into pieces
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce


Step 1

Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok over a high heat until smoking. Stir-fry the garlic for 10-15 secs, until fragrant.

Step 2

Throw in the lettuce and stir-fry, tossing frequently, until glossy and coated in the oil.

Step 3

Add the sauces and 1 tbsp water; stir-fry until the lettuce is only just wilted. Serve immediately.
