Bok Choy Stir Fry Recipe

Bok Choy, otherwise known as White Chinese Cabbage, is certainly not a stranger to Chinese cuisine. Walk into any Chinese restaurant and you’ll find Bok Choy complimenting most of the dishes on the menu.  Originally grown by the Yangtze River during the Ming Dynasty, Bok Choy has made its way throughout the decades to China, Korea, Japan, and North America. Originally known for its nutritional value and resistance to cold, Bok Choy nowadays is not only loved for its health perks, but also for its fresh natural taste that goes well with many stir fried dishes. This tasty plant is not only jam packed with vitamins, but also has a uniquely fresh and slightly sweet taste that will make you excited to eat your vegetables. The best part is that Bok Choy is extremely low maintenance, easy to cook, and convenient to storage. Here’s a home styled recipe from my childhood that will allow you to whip up a fabulous plate of stir fry in under 30 mins. Plus, all you’ll need is some salt, sugar, pepper, and chicken broth. Too good to be true? Try it out for yourself.
