Sweet and Sticky Pak Choi Stir Fry Rice

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

Substitute:

  • No pak choi? Use cabbage, peppers, sugar snap peas or leeks instead. 
  • No rice? Try with noodles instead. 
  • No eggs? Use crumbled tofu instead.
