I bet that a few of you have a napa cabbage tucked away in your crisper and you’re wondering what to do with it. This recipe, from epicurious.com, is quick, simple and tasty. I like to garnish it with a little cilantro.
1 pound bok choy
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 pound Savoy or Napa cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
Trim 1/8 inch from bottom of bok choy, 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.
