Stir-fried Gai Choy/Asian Mustard Green

I decided to try stir-fry Asian mustard green/gai choy for dinner. Tips from my readers suggested I stir-fry it with anchovies and season with salt. And since I have some leftover chicken breast I decided to add it in. I really loved it! I couldn't taste the slight bitterness at all. It is slightly crunchy and really good in stir-fry. I am going to use it for more stir-fry from now on. Thank you readers and S for sharing. Now I have an additional vegetable to buy when grocery shopping in the Asian market. ;-) Oh, it is also very good in Hotpot/Steamboat (another recent discovery).


Washed and sliced one big bowl of Asian mustard green/gai choy
1/4 cup of anchovies, rinsed and dried

2 cloves of garlic, chopped

Salt to taste

1 cup of leftover chicken breast (optional)


1. Heat wok with oil. When heated, add in anchovies, stir-fry until golden brown, add in garlic.

2. Add in gai choy, stir-fry for a little while, add in leftover chicken breast (if used) and season to taste with salt.

Don't over fry it, just stir-fry until the gai choy is cooked.

Wow thanks sock peng for another excellent idea. I know I would love gai choy fried rice. Can imagine how yummy it is already.

Thanks Jackie, agreed I had those with porridge. :)

Thanks noobcook.

Jin Hooi,
Added chili padi would be really nice, too bad got little kids at home now, so lots of dishes I cook these days have to be considerate of my kids taste buds.
