Dragon Greens Stir Fry Recipe
2 handfulls of Asian greens (baby bok choy, Chinese kale, Thai mustard), cleaned & de-stemmed
1 bunch green onions (6+),cleaned and intact, remove only the tips
3 fresh garlic pods, sliced thin
1 red, yellow or orange bell pepper, sliced thin
1 onion, sliced thin
1 handful of shiitake mushrooms, sliced medium thin
1 cup of edamame
1 small stalk of ginger, sliced thin
1 container of firm tofu and/or 1 beef loin steak (sliced thinly)
The following ingredients are for stir frying and flavoring:
*soy sauce or teriyaki (I prefer teriyaki for this)
Stir fry the onions & bell pepper in a blend of sesame & chili oil (spoonful of each), once translucent, add garlic & green onions.
Gradually layer in edamame, mushrooms. You may need to add more sesame & chili oil as you go...always just enough to cook without becoming oily. Remove from heat and add the washed greens, stir them around and allow to wilt.
In separate pan: heat a spoonful of sesame oil & a splash of chili oil for flavor. When hot add the sliced beef and or tofu. Season with sesame seeds, Mirin, ginger, Teriyaki or soy sauce. Allow to sear for a few minutes. Add to the Stir Fry vegetables and serve over jasmine rice or noodles.
