While living in Minnesota, I discovered that I love Korean Bok Choy Stir-Fry. Since we enjoyed so many local restaurants, I rarely cooked. Most of the time, I did not want to brave the Minnesota weather. Luckily, our favorite Asian diner, Satay 2 Go, delivered! Corrine and her family ensured we never lacked for a sumptuous variety of delicious Malay, Korean, and Asian food options. We ate there so often, they knew us on a first-name basis!
Now that we live in our small hometown on the southeastern Gulf Coast, we miss the restaurant selections. Of course, we have Chinese take-out, but they aren’t anything special. The food from take-out places so closely resembles one another that it’s impossible to tell them apart. I am also disappointed by the limited Japanese food choices. Bangkok Garden is an excellent Thai restaurant, but is not just a hop, skip, and jump away. It’s all the way on the other side of town.
That’s about it. It’s a small town. We have no glamorous restaurant options, so guess who has had to get up off her lazy duff and cook more often? Yeah… this girl. To my delighted surprise, I enjoy it!
Bok Choy Stir-Fry
I’ve exhausted the internet trying to recreate Corrine’s recipes, but many of them call for ingredients that are difficult to source in this sleepy town. I was, however, able to piece together a delicious Bok Choy Stir-Fry. While I found inspiration in Korean Bibimbap, this recipe is not a true rendition of that dish, but it’s still delicious.
