Sweet and Sticky Pak Choi Stir Fry Rice

This delicious stir fry recipe makes the perfect quick dinner for those busy weeknights.

The chopped pak choi is tossed in a simple stir fry sauce made. Made with ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and honey, the sauce is slightly salty, yet tangy, and just a little sweet. The pak choi is caramelised and the rice soaks up the sauce.
