What is pak choi?

Bok choi belongs to the Brassica family and is a staple ingredient in Chinese cuisine.

This leafy Chinese cabbage is often used in stir fries and soups and adds crunch to the dish.

Bok choi has a neutral, fresh taste and works best when quickly fried or steamed and served in a casserole dish.

How do you prepare pak choi?

Bok choi is easy to prepare and can be cooked in a few minutes in several ways.

First, wash your fresh pak choi and dry it.

You can then simply peel back the leafy segments until you reach the center of the bok choi, this works well if you want to cook it while retaining its characteristic crunch.

Alternatively, you can cut the green leaves off the white stems and cook them separately, this is better if you want to cook the bok choi longer as the leaves will cook faster than the white stems.
