2 pounds bok choy
wash and drain well, separated
½ tablespoon sichuan peppercorns
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 each scallions, spring or green onions
thinly sliced
1 teaspoon ginger
freshly minced
4 cloves garlic
2 each red chili peppers
freshly and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce, tamari
½ tablespoon soy bean paste
if you don't have, use soy sauce instead, or you can use miso paste
2 teaspoons cornstarch
mixed with 1 tablespoon of water
½ tablespoon mirin (sweet seasoning)
or honey, or sugar
1 dash sesame oil
or as needed
to taste


Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.

Add the sichuan peppers into the hot oil, stirring frequently, cook for about 5 minutes, reduce the heat if needed until the peppers are cracked, and fragrant.

Using a slotting spoon, take the sichuan peppercorns out of the oil, and discard the peppercorns.

Turn the heat back to the medium-high, add the ginger, garlic, scallions, red chili peppers and rice vinegar, stirring constantly, and cook for about 2 minutes.

Stir in the bok choy or cabbage.

Stir and fry for about 3 to 6 minutes until cooked through, bok choy will be faster, and cabbage will need a little longer.

Meanwhile prepare the sauce.

When the cooking is close to the end, 1 or 2 minutes left, pour the sauce into the vegetables.

Stir until well coated and thickened, 1 or 2 minutes.

Season with salt to taste if needed.

Serve hot with rice or egg noodles.

Very well balanced! The stir-fry was quick and easy to make, we used Chinese cabbage, cooked it a little bit longer, and it came out very flavorful and juicy, we served it with some brown rice, and very very good! Will definitely another keeper.
