Chinese Inspired Dinner

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:


  • 1/2 cup onion, sliced
  • 1-2 Tbsp. chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery
  • Ad

  • 1/4 cup green pepper, chopped small
  • 1/2-1 cup chinese cabbage, chopped
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 1/2 cup frozen or fresh peas, thawed
  • 2-3 cup cooked, cooled white rice
  • 1/4 cup green onion, chopped in 1/2 in pieces
  • 1 or 2 scrambled eggs
  • 2-3 Tbsp. lite soy sauce


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.



  • 1/2 cup lite soy
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 2 Tbsp. corn starch stirred into the soy and water

then add:

  • 1 tsp. garlic, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. peanut butter
  • Microwave everything but the peanut butter 2 minutes and stir.
  • Stir in peanut butter.


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.
