J's Bok Choi

J. White Harris


After American cooking, the first style of cooking I studied and began to use was Chinese cuisine. The food is usually cut into bite size pieces before cooking. This allows the food to cook quickly and uses less fuel. The wok is the perfect cooking implement to utilize this cooking style.

Bok Choi, a type of Chinese cabbage, is one of my favorite vegetables. This recipe is very easy to make, it is delicious to eat, and it goes with most anything. I put this recipe together to duplicate a dish I had in a Chinese restaurant.
