Just bought a Chinese cabbage at our little farm market and went to town with a Chinese inspired dinner. Please don't be afraid of trying the sauce! It was wonderful!
First, assemble the ingredients for the fried rice:
Peanut oil to coat the bottom and sides. Make sure the wok is hot before adding the oil.
Add in order given, cooking the onion, celery, green pepper and garlic a bit, first.
Our favorite thing to top the fried rice with is fried chicken livers. You can also use a boneless, skinless chicken breast, sliced very thin and stir fried in a hot wok. This can be marinated in soy and garlic, first if that sounds good to you. Tonight, I added a bit of Chinese five-spice to the chicken, and then coated it in corn starch and quick-fried it in the wok.
If you don't have a wok, use a nice, heavy iron skillet. Just make sure it is very hot before adding oil and stir the ingredients constantly.
