This is a wonderful side dish for an Asian style entree. Bok choy has a wonderful, crisp texture that is reminiscent of celery. You can easily add shrimp or chicken to make a main dish, but I recommend doubling the sauce if you do so. Simple and yummy:)
A really easy pork stir fry that goes well with either rice & stir fried veggies or with potatoes & salad.
*Note: I sometimes add 1 tsp minced garlic and/or 1 tsp minced ginger to the marinade to kick it up a notch!!
Made with ingredients I usually have on hand. This is what I make to clean out my fridge, so the veggies are different each time, but I love this version. This can easily be made vegetarian by substituting vegetable broth.
I've made this a few times now and it's always quick and surprisingly satisfying for a reduced-fat entree. I keep frozen cooked shrimp on hand as a staple for a last-minute but gourmet dinner. They defrost in a matter of minutes, so I don't take them out of my freezer until I'm ready to start cooking. I put the shrimp in a colander, run tepid water over them for a minute or so, and after they sit about five minutes, I can pull the tail shell off, and they're ready to heat up! Serve over pasta or rice.
Easy and delicious. Curry is not traditionally a Chinese spice, but it adds a hint of exotic, subtle flavor to this dish. This can be a filling dinner for 2 on it's own or can be served as part of a multi-course Chinese-style dinner. It matches well with vegetables, especially string beans or broccoli.
