Bok Choy Surprise!


I've never cooked with bok choy before and I have to say I was a little bit intimidated. I wasn't sure how to slice it and what areas to add to the stir fry and what to throw away.

In the end, I ended up using almost all of it. I just trimmed the edges of the white stalks and removed any of the green areas that did not look appetizing.

Here is the recipe I made:

  • 1/2 c onion
  • 1 lb thin beef steak
  • 1 bok choy
  • 1 c water
  • 1/4 c rice vinegar
  • 1/4 c soy sauce
  • 1 T sugar

I sauteed some onions and then added the thin beef steak strips. I cooked it until the meat was done, and then removed the beef from the pan.

I then stir-fried the bok choy for about 5 minutes, then added enough water to cover all the bok choy. I let that cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes, or until most of the water was gone.

Then I added the rice vinegar, soy sauce and some sugar to taste.

I served the beef bok choy over a bed of brown rice that I had cooked yesterday, so dinner was done in less than 30 minutes.

I love these type of meals!

For dessert, I just had another fruit bowl.  Nothing fancy, but very refreshing for this time of year!

Did I Read?

No, I've been so bad since I finished my last book. I'm almost done with the Unfortunate Traveler so I just have to power through!!

Good night :)
