Karl’s Stir-fry with Bok Choi and Chive Stem

I am making a Chinese roast pork for Sunday. A vegetable stir-fry is a necessary compliment to a meat heavy dish. Going to Lion Market, I finally decided on baby bok choi and to add variety chive stem.

Karl’s Chicken in Plum Sauce

I was wondering around Lion Market yesterday, thinking about what I would make for dinner—this is actually my normal state of being. I was looking at the Lee Kum Kee sauces for ones I had not tried yet. I settled on plum sauce.

Karl’s Chinese Chive Stem and Cucumbers Stir Fry

I was making Asian cabbage rolls and I wanted to serve a vegetable side dish. When I looked at how much Chinese chive stem I had bought, it seemed a bit scant for five people. I had also bought an English cucumber, that I had planned to pickle, but I decided instead to use it to stretch the chive stem.

Karl’s Oyster Mushrooms and Chive Stems in Black Pepper Sauce

For Miriam’s birthday dinner, she asked for Spicy chicken and pan fried noodles. This is a dish that takes an hour of “mindful” frying and—while it is a wonderful dish—I make it less than my kids would like—like maybe every day. This is a one dish meal by itself, but I decided to add another favorite of Miriam’s and make a mushroom side dish.

Karl’s Chive Stem and Napa Cabbage Stir Fry

Jan has not been home for dinner the last several nights (four conferences in one week). The one night she knew she would be home was Thursday and she asked for steamed fish. This is normally Eilene’s night with her friends, but finals are coming up so she had told me that they would not be coming over. My dinner plan was for steamed fish and stir fried chive stem.
