|Mustard Greens, Simple and Easy|
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup thinly sliced onions
3 cloves fresh garlic, peeled and chopped finely
8 cups cong cai or any other type of mustard green, rinsed and cut or torn into two-inch pieces
3 Tablespoons chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon mixed salt and pepper
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1. Cut away center ribs and sliver them, tear rest of the leaves into one-inch pieces.
2. Heat a wok or large sauce pan, then add the oil, and just before it smokes, add the onions and the garlic, reduce the heat, and stir-fry for about eight minutes until these vegetables start to brown.
3. Add the bigger pieces of the mustard greens and the stock, and stir-fry for about three minutes until the greens wilt and most liquid evaporates. Then push them to one side and add slivers of their stems, salt and pepper, and the sesame oil, and stir-fry for one minute before tossing everything together. Then serve everything together on pre-heated plates.
