Garlic and Ginger Pac Choi
Serve this delicious Asian style side dish alongside grilled chicken and some rice for a great simple meal.
2 small heads of Pac Choi
1 TB finely minced ginger
2 gloves minced garlic
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 TB tamari or soy sauce
6-8 drops of toasted sesame oil
Use a chef's nice to make thin slices across from the bottom of the Pac Choi head up freeing the stalks as you do so. Wash the stalks to remove any trapped silt from between stalks. Chop the white stalks crosswise into 1/2 to 1/2 slices until you reach the leaves. Chop leaves into 1 or wider ribbons and set aside.
Heat a saute pan on the stove top and add some cooking oil. When hot add the stalks and let them sizzle for a minute until they are just starting to soften a bit. Add the ginger, garlic and the red pepper flakes. Saute for 1 more minute. Add the tamari, 6-8 drops of toasted sesame oil, and the leaves. Saute until the leaves have wilted.
