Stir-Fried Pac Choi and Cabbage

Stir-Fried Bok Choy and Cabbage
An easy stir-fry that will help you put your pac choi and (some of) that lunker of a red cabbage from a few weeks ago to good use...


  • 1 pound pac choi
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 pound red cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted

Trim 1/8 inch from bottom of pac choi, then quarter lengthwise and thinly slice crosswise.
Heat a 14-inch flat-bottomed wok or 12-inch heavy skillet over high heat until a drop of water evaporates instantly. Pour vegetable oil down side of wok, swirling to coat sides. Add garlic and stir-fry 10 seconds. Add cabbage and 1/4 teaspoon salt and stir-fry 3 minutes. Add bok choy and stir-fry until ribs are crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Serve drizzled with sesame oil and sprinkled with sesame seeds.
