Method

  1. Cut a thick slice from the pak choi root to separate the leaves. Rinse and drain.
  2. Heat the groundnut oil in a large wok over a medium heat and add 1 tbsp sesame oil, the garlic, chilli, fish sauce (if using) and pak choi. Toss until coated and clamp a pan lid over them. Reduce the heat and cook for 3-6 minutes, tossing occasionally, just until the leaves have wilted (the stalks should be tender-crisp).
  3. Add the rest of the sesame oil and salt. Toss the leaves and serve immediately.

Made this last night for dinner with friends. Very quick, to do and delicious to eat. I will be making this again.

How simple but soooo tasty. Great accompaniment to any dish. Didn't need any additional seasoning as far as I'm concerned.

Lovely flavour. I had mushrooms that I needed to use up, so I threw them in with the pak choi. They absorbed the flavours and were so delicious. Will definitely make again!

I cooked this and everyone really enjoyed it, even non-veg eaters!

This is a super dish and goes very well with Spiced Thai Crap Cakes and a mixed fried rice
