This recipe is so simple and delicious. If you have properly boiled and prepared poke salad greens that are ready to go, this recipe only takes about 10 minutes. 

 

Key Features and Tips

This dish is made with a plant called pokeweed (Phytolacca americana). The texture of this dish is similar to cooked collard greens. The pokeweed greens are also completely free if you are able to forage and harvest them legally and safely. You must also properly pre-boil/cook the pokeweed prior to using it in this recipe or any recipe. 

 

Pokeweed is toxic until properly cooked. Never eat the berries or the roots of the plant, and never eat mature plants. If you do not know how to properly harvest and prepare pokeweed to remove the toxins prior to use in any recipe, then please do your own research on the topic first. *We will not be held liable for any damages because the entire preparation process is in fact in your own hands. There are a ton of resources and how-to’s online with a simple Google search. We have our own how to harvest and prepare pokeweed post here as well.

How to Make Stir-Fried Poke Salad (Sallet) Greens

  1. First, let’s go ahead and get the stir-fry sauce ready. Add all of the stir-fry sauce ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Set aside for later.
  2. Place a large-sized frying pan on medium-high heat and allow the pan to warm up. Once the pan is hot, add the olive oil and the poke salad greens and stir fry for 6-7 minutes. (You want to continue stir-frying the greens until almost all the water has evaporated.)
  3. Then, pour the stir-fry sauce you made earlier onto the poke salad greens in the frying pan. Continue stir-frying for another 3-4 minutes.
  4. Enjoy!

Yummy! You could also add this into stir-fried rice, or just on top of a bowl of freshly steamed white rice. Add a drizzle of sesame oil on top of the rice and enjoy!
