Delicious lamb and vegetable stir fry

Delicious lamb and vegetable stir fry

Well-seasoned lamb goes very well with many dishes. The lamb has to be salty and peppery enough.  Just about a week ago, I cooked Lamb And Vegetable Rice Noodles. My family loved it very much. Since my family loves bok choy, I thought this would be a good combination. I was right….it was such a good match that the big plate of vegetables was not enough for 3 persons. I have to double the vegetables next time. The flavour of the lamb infused into the vegetables beautifully.

This dish is very simple, easy and quick if you have this cooked lamb in your fridge. To learn how to cook the lamb, it’s shown in the recipe, Lamb And Vegetable Rice Noodles. In fact there’s no fixed recipe to cook this vegetable dish. It won’t go wrong unless you put too much salt. Here is my recipe to share.

Bok Choi
cooked lamb
chicken stock granules
fried garlic oil
pinch of sugar

White bok choy

Wash the bok choi. Cut into halves in the middle. Cut the stems into halves again.

Slice the lamb meat into thin pieces. Panfry them gently in the pan to heat it up and also to release the flavour. Dish up.

Heat up some garlic oil in the frying pan. Add the vegetables and stir fry for a while. Add the chicken stock granules (a little is good enough)and sugar. Add the lamb meat and mix well. Dish it up onto a plate and serve hot. This dish goes very well with rice, noodles or potatoes.

Wow, that’s a lovely dish. I love bokchoy and I love it crunchy. I’ll substitute that with beef or pork as they are easier to find. We usually add meat to vegetables to give it flavor. Although sometimes we don’t. But every Christmas we usually receive some Chinese ham and we had a little bit of that to the vegetables.

@Divina - Oh….time you come here…lots of ham and lamb. But when you come, bring lots of bok choy….hehe.

Nice dish…. the Bok choy in your pics are they big, or small? We have at least 2 varieties here, one is big and the other is much smaller, the leaves are a bit curly.

Shirley  on November 25th, 2009

No clue about Bok choi.

Mary  on November 25th, 2009

@Cheah - Yes, they are big. There are 2 varieties here too….white and green. This is the white stem bok choy. We love the crunchy stems.

@Shirley - Bok Choy is a very delicious dark green leafy vegetable with crunchy stems. It is lovely as a stir fry. Here we always buy them from the Chinese supermarkets. It’s expensive and rare in other supermarkets.

What a great way to eat lamb! I bet bok choi gives a great flavor to this dish!

kristy  on November 25th, 2009

Hmm…mm… another yummy dish! I missed all these food because of my hubby & the kids are picky eater. Are those bok choy imported? Back here the mini size one is imported from China and the bigger one is from Cameron Highland. Not cheap though!

We have both sizes of bok choy here depending where I am getting from. Asian groceries always sell small ones.

Mary  on November 25th, 2009

@Sook - I think they both pair up well. We love the crunchiness of the bok choy with the well-seasoned taste & flavour of the lamb.

@Kristy - Now you have to come here to enjoy eating lamb….lots here and we love it very much. On the other hand, there’s no one to fight it over with you there…you can have all that you want!

@Penny - I don’t think I see the small ones here. These are big ones I think. I’m sure the small ones are very delicious too….should be more tender.

Lamb with bok-choy looks very good.Have add lamb with asparagus, bunching onion,broccoli,kai lan,spinach(Indian dish).But I prefer pork if I have to add meat to vegetable.

Mary  on November 25th, 2009

@foodlovee - Thanks for mentioning the different types of vegetables to go with lamb. I’m sure all of them taste very delicious. I would love to try them.

Bok choy is usually an inexpensive vegetable here in H.K.(mostly imported from the mainland China), I can finish as much as 300g in one meal all by myself.

Mary  on November 25th, 2009

@TasteHongKong - You are very lucky. How jealous I am to see that you are enjoying so much cheap bok choy there :( I can see that you really like it. I have to cook more next time to make sure that everyone has enough.

I’ve never seen lamb and bok choy before, but it looks delish!

Ellie  on November 25th, 2009

Lamb stir fry! I like it! It used to be very difficult to get a good piece of lamb in Malaysia.

rebecca  on November 25th, 2009

cool lamb bok choy love it

Mary  on November 26th, 2009

@Light Delight with Tou Tou - Haha…NO big family. I have a small family. I have to borrow all my friends….LOL. Well, this dish is just one of my daily family dinner dishes. We always have something simple. Happy Thanksgiving too.

@Jessica - It’s my first time cooking this dish and it’s a surprise to me too. But it tastes really good.

@Ellie - Agree with you that it’s not easy to get good lamb in Malaysia. We hardly had it, maybe only on a few occasions only. I’m glad that I can get good cuts of lamb here.

@Rebecca - It is a lovely dish. Hope you try out soon.
