Delicious! This is the best stir fry I've ever made and I'm amazed it was so flavourful without oyster sauce, fish sauce, kekap manis etc! However, next time I'll add garlic. I also used tamari instead of soy sauce, peanut oil instead of sesame and about half the recommended oil for both. And an extra bunch of pak choy. Served it on a bed of cauliflower "rice" for myself and brown rice for my boyfriend. We both loved it!

I made this recipe to the letter Very tasty. Then the next night I discovered I had thawed chicken mince by mistake so I adapted the recipe and made chicken rissoles. I mixed in all the herbs and chilli from this recipe into the chicken mince. Nothing else and cooked them in the sesame oil for a divine rissole. A tossed salad and lime juice to garnish. Quick and easy. My husband reckoned it was one of the best meals he's had.

Hi Netty85, Pak Choy and Bok Choy are very similar in the way they look and taste; you could certainly use either. Our understanding is that if the stems are white, it is bok choy. If they are green, it is pak choy. Hope that helps!

Really good recipe. Make sure you use fresh coriander and not dried / tube stuff. Really fresh and delicate flavours. Yum.
