Step 1

Combine rice wine, soy sauce, sugar, and salt in a small bowl.  

Step 2

Heat medium sized frying pan or flat wok over high heat, until a bead of water vaporizes within 2secs of contact.  Add vegetable oil and garlic, stir-fry 5secs. Add lettuce, stir-fry 2min. Stir in rice wine mixture, stir fry further 1min, until lettuce is just tender and bright green.

Try using bok choy instead of lettuce if you prefer.
