This stir-fried bok choy recipe is incredibly easy to make and healthy too! You only need a few Asian ingredients to whip up this stir-fried bok choy. And if you already cook a lot of Asian-style recipes at home, you probably have these ingredients in your pantry already. 

 

Key features and tips

Remember that vegetables, especially a leafy variety like bok choy will cook down quite a bit. One pound may seem like a lot, but it’s really not once it’s cooked. Make sure to wash the bok choy really well before cooking. You want to ensure all the dirt is rinsed away from the leaves. There is nothing worse than gritty vegetables from not rinsing them thoroughly.

 

If you swap out the Dasida beef powder soup stock, this recipe will be a Paleo and a Whole30 compliant side dish as well. Simply swap out the Dasida beef powder soup stock for a mushroom umami powder. Here’s one that would work well.

How to make this bok choy side dish recipe

Step 1: Clean and prepare the bok choy

Remove each leaf off of the bok choy heads carefully. Then rinse the bok choy leaves thoroughly to remove any dirt and debris. You may need to rinse them several times to ensure all the dirt is removed. Cut all of the big leaves in half (from the top of the leaf down to the stem). 

 

Step 2: Combine all seasonings together

Combine the seasonings together so it is ready to go in the hot pan. Mix together the salt, Dasida beef soup stock powder, fish sauce, ground black pepper, and minced garlic in a small bowl. Set aside.

 

Step 3: Stir-fry it all together

Heat up a frying pan on medium to medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and once the pan and oil are hot, add the bok choy and the small bowl of seasonings. 

Stir-fry quickly for about 5 minutes, just until the bok choy gets slightly wilted. We like a little crunch left in the bok choy. 

 

Step 4: Plate and serve

Plate and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Serving suggestions

This bok choy side dish would go great with freshly steamed rice (of course!) and your choice of protein.
