Before I go into the recipe, I will let you all gaze in awe at the baby bok choy I got in my CSA box today.

Are you done?  heh. How gorgeous is that??

I used the baby bok choy to make one awesome stir fry. 


  • I baby bok choy, chopped
  • 1 lb of stir fry beef (found in most supermarkets)
  • 1 lb (or less) raw shrimp
  • 1/2 bad of julienned carrots
  • 1 can sliced water chestnuts
  • 1 good handful of snow peas
  • 1 bag of chow mein noodles (boil these until al dente, drain and set aside)
  • 3 -4 tablespoons of stir fry sauce of your choice (I used garlic and ginger)
  • 4 tablespoons oil, separated
  • sesame seeds for garnish

In a wok, deep skillet, or dutch oven, heat 2 tablespoons of oil and stir fry beef and shrimp.  Stir fry until the shrimp turn a bright orange in color.

Add remaining oil and veg (water chestnuts, carrots and snow peas).  Stir fry until heated through.  I like my veg on the crunchy side.  If you want, you could stir fry until your carrots were soft.  Add the bok choy and stir fry until leaves have wilted. if you chopped the bottom part of the bok choy as well, cook it until its soft-ish with a bite still left to it. 

Add the stir fry sauce and chow mein noodles.  Plate, and sprinkle with seasame seeds.

      Thank you so much. My two children and myself get to enjoy all of this good stuff. My son is vegetarian so I work around least try to.

      Nice to meet another Sarah from the Midwest!
