Korean Bok Choy Stir-Fry - Vegetarian - High Protein - One Dish Meal
Korean Bok Choy Stir-Fry – a high protein Vegetarian One Dish Meal that comes together quickly and completely satisfies.

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!

Learn to make a delicious Korean Bok Choy Stir-Fry. Vegetarian | High Protein | One-Dish MealNow 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.

If you try it, be sure to leave me a comment and let me know how you liked it!

    I have tried so many times to recreate our favorite dishes from hibachi and Asian restaurants but they always fall flat :/ I’ll give this one a shot as it sounds like you are similar to me and really want it to be like the real thing.

    I love fried rice that has an egg in it. Usually it’s scrambled but I love the idea of a fried egg. So yummy.

    • Alicia Taylor

      March 21, 2016 - 11:46 am

      Well, it’s technically not fried rice – but it’s still a delicious dish!

    Although this dish sounds delicious it is high in carbs (I am diabetic)-although except for the rice I can’t figure out why. Maybe I will try to recalculate the carbs and see what I can come up with with substitutions.

      Have you ever tried cauliflower rice? It really cuts down the carbs in rice dishes. I’ve started making that for my hubby and he loves it.

    I absolutely love fried rice, but I’ve never seen a half of an egg in it. I have had small pieces in fried rice once or twice and it was good.
