Stir-fried pork with bok choy

    40 minutes

    Bok choy supplies the same disease-fighting anti-oxidants as other cabbages, as well as considerably higher amounts of calcium and beta carotene.

    1. Stir together half the sherry and all the soy sauce, cornflour, sesame oil, sugar and pepper in a small bowl. Add pork. Toss to coat. Marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes.
    2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in large non-stick frying pan or wok over high heat. Add bok choy. Stir-fry 2 minutes. Cover. Cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Transfer bok choy to a plate. Discard liquid left in frying pan.
    3. Add remaining oil to pan. Add garlic. Sauté 15 seconds. Add the pork mixture and stir-fry until the meat is just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Add bok choy and remaining sherry. Cook until heated through. Serve immediately.

    Used different ingredients. When I tasted the dish at the end I thought it needed a bit more flavour so I added some finely chopped fresh ginger. It improved the taste, but ideally I would have added it earlier in the cooking, either with the meat, or even added it to the marinade.  -  09 Jun 2009


    Very disappointed with this recipe. It had virtually no flavour! I used ginger too and marinated the meat for over an hour but still below average.  -  27 Feb 2015
