This Chinese stir fry uses Bok Choy, sometimes known as Chinese Chard or Chinese Mustard. Bok Choy is a member of the Brassica family but doesn’t form a head and is a very popular vegetable in S.E. Asia. This Bok Choy recipe can be used as a side dish but is equally delicious eaten on its own. Bok Choy is sometimes written as “Bok Choi”. I enjoy Bok Choy best when the stems are still slightly crunchy.
