Cutting the bok choy into long, thin strips mimic the long noodles in this pork stir-fry. We like Japanese soba noodles because they are made with buckwheat, which gives them a nutty flavor and a boost of fiber. You can also use mild-flavored rice noodles or whole-wheat spaghetti. Serve with sliced cucumbers dressed with rice-wine vinegar and a glass of sauvignon blanc. Source: EatingWell Magazine, September/October 2009

  • Meanwhile, slice pork into thin rounds; cut each round into matchsticks. Whisk water, rice wine (or sherry), soy sauce and cornstarch in a small bowl.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add bok choy and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the pork, garlic and chile-garlic sauce; cook, stirring, until the pork is just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Whisk the cornstarch mixture again, add it to the pan and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring, until the sauce has thickened, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve the pork and vegetables over the noodles.

Tips

Ingredient Notes: Shao Hsing (or Shaoxing) is a seasoned rice wine available in the Asian or wine section of some supermarkets markets and in Asian food markets.

People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.

Easy to Make I used chicken breast instead of the Pork it calls for. I add a little salt and pepper to the chicken. The dish was quick and easy to make. Instead of cutting the Bok Choy into long thin strips I just gave it quick cut including the leaves. Even good cold. Will definitely make again!!! Read More
