Here is the first recipe for y’all! This is what we had for supper Wednesday evening. It’s super easy but it does use oyster sauce, A large majority of Khmer foods use it. so if you want to try a lot of Khmer recipes, I’d suggest buying some!
You should be able to find it in the Asian isles in Walmart. But if not, in the notes, I’m sharing an amazon link to the brand that they use here. You could try substituting it with fish sauce or soy sauce but no promises!
~Khmer Bok Choy and Pork~
1 ½ C. Ground pork
1 Tbsp. Oil
5 cloves minced garlic
1 Tbsp. Chicken bouillon
2-3 Tbsp. Oyster sauce
1-2 Tsp. Sugar
¼ Medium onion Diced
1 Lb. Bok choy
Green onion (optional)
Fry the garlic in oil until the garlic turns golden brown. Add the pork, chicken bouillon, oyster sauce, and sugar. Once the pork is almost cooked, add the onion and cook until soft.
Fill a pot with water and bring to a boil. Cut bok choy in half lengthwise. Add the bok choy to boiling water and blanch.
Arrange the bok choy on a platter in a circle with ends facing outward. Pour the meat mixture on top and garnish with green onion. Serve with rice.
Notes: Chicken bouillon, powdered not cubes.
This is the Same brand of oyster sauce that they use here.
