Pak choi with garlic and chillies

Pak choi with garlic and chillies

A very quick post before a longer one tomorrow – we have just eaten a brilliant meal of crisp Chinese roast pork belly, but the side dish I made with it was surprisingly yummy for being really easy and so I thought it was worthy of its own post beforehand.

Now the original idea for tonight’s dinner had been to go and find some more mysterious fruit and veg, to post another Mystery Ingredient to follow on from the Karela, but I think we went to the shop at the wrong time of day as they didn’t have anything too exciting this time… this space though as I have a couple of ideas up my sleeve!

Anyway, back to the pak choi – it’s super simple, and all you need (for a side dish to serve 2) is:

  • 2-3 pak choi 
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • dried chilli flakes

Just pull or cut the leaves off each pak choi while heating some oil in a large pan. Add the chilli and garlic and cook for a minute or so before adding the pak choi and briefly stir-frying until tender but still vibrantly green and not overcooked – about 3-4 minutes.

  2. I live Hong Kong and we eat Pak Choi in Oyster Sauce all the time in local restaurants. It’s soooo yummy! I’m definitely going to give your recipe a try, it sounds delicious. Must just have to make your pork to go alongside it too!
