What is Bok Choy?

Bok choy (aka pak choi or pok choi) is a type of Chinese cabbage but unlike regular cabbages, they do not form heads and have leafy greens with bulbs at the bottoms. Some describe the flavor as somewhere between spinach and water chestnuts with a slight hint of sweet and peppery undertone.

What are Beech Mushrooms?

Beech mushrooms are also known as Shimeji mushrooms. They taste kind of buttery, and have a firm and ‘crunchy’ texture.

These mushrooms are also very healthy for you – Beech mushrooms are packed with thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin!

By the way there are so many delicious mushrooms out there! If you’re interested in learning more – check out my post ALL about mushrooms – beech mushrooms, enoki, shiitake and more!

How to prepare Beech Mushrooms?

To prepare Beech mushrooms, using a knife, trim off the root. Now there’s some controversy with the next part. Many people say not to wash your mushrooms and just wipe off any dirt. However, I personally just can’t do that. So I do rinse it in water to clear off the dirt and anything else that might be all dirty on there.

How to cook Bok Choy Beech Mushrooms Stir Fry

First gather your ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp cooking oil of choice
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, smashed
  • 3 bunches of Shanghai Bok Choy
  • 1 package/3.5 oz Beech Mushrooms
  • Salt, as desired

Using a knife cut off the end of your bok choy with a knife and discard. Trim off the roots of the beech mushrooms. Either wipe off any dirt, or rinse with water to clean.

Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat.  Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds, and then add the bok choy.

Stir fry for a about 1 minute, and then add the beech mushrooms. Stir fry for about 30 seconds, and then add 1/4 cup of water and cover with a lid for about a minute.

Uncover the cooking pan/wok, and then add salt as desired. Stir fry for another minute or until everything is tender – bok choy should be vibrant green, and beech mushrooms should be tender.

Remove from heat and serve!

Hi there - I have a coconut curry chicken with potatoes recipe that is customizable depending on the type of curry powder or paste you use (for example, if you use thai red curry paste, you get thai red curry chicken, and if you use jamaican curry powder, you will get jamaican flavor curry chicken) - so if you have a chinese curry powder or paste you should be able to use it... here's the recipe - https://ohsnapletseat.com/2013/05/20/easy-coconut-milk-curry-chicken/ hope you find something good!
