I can't get enough of stir-fried. Simple and easy. Since we have already washed the wok and kept it within easy reach, why not use it more often? Hehe...:)
We went to the market that day, bought $1 of Chinese lettuce, which normally costs 1000% more during Chinese New Year. So we happily stir-fried the 7-8 bunches of them, filling the entire wok before sweating it down.
Stir-frying. You can see that CY is having some difficulties to turn them, but just for a while.... Keep on stirring and they will quickly be reduced to just a plate of vegetables. That's also the reason why we need a wok because it's easier to stir and can stir-fry more leafy vegetables.
Ingredients: Sliced garlic ( 4 cloves), canola oil (or any other frying oil), 1 kg of Chinese lettuce, 1 tbsp of soy sauce, pepper and 0.5 tsp corn starch mixed with some water.
- In a basin filled with water, wash the lettuce thoroughly, leaf by leaf. This vegetable is notorious for grit.
- Heat some oil with high heat, fry garlic till slightly brown.
- Pour in all lettuce, stir fry.
- When all lettuce wither down, turn down the heat, add corn starch mixture, soy sauce and pepper to taste.
