Wilted Watercress with Garlic
2 tablespoon corn oil
12 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
4 bunches watercress (about 20 ounces), trimmed (about 12 packed cups)
1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup chicken stock or reduced-sodium broth

Heat a dry 12-inch heavy skillet or wok (not nonstick) over medium heat until hot. Add oil, then garlic, and cook, tossing constantly, until garlic is deep golden. Add watercress and salt, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook, tossing constantly, 45 seconds. Add stock and toss again, then cook, covered, until stems are crisp-tender and leaves are just wilted, about 20 seconds.

Serve with garlic cloves arranged on top.

Cooks' note:
Watercress can be washed and trimmed 1 day ahead and chilled in a sealable bag.
