One of the few ways I can get Rick to eat leafy green vegetables is if I put them in a stir fry. Come to think of it, that’s pretty much the only way he’ll eat greens! I found myself with some bok choy and broccoli on hand, so I thought I’d try a venison stir fry. The result was delicious, although my kitchen was a mess.
Recipe: Venison & Bok Choy Stir Fry
Summary: crispy vegetables with tangy ginger make this stir fry pop
- 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger or ginger paste
- 3 cloves minced fresh garlic
- 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch, divided

- 4 cups sliced bok choy (about 1 medium head)
- 2 cups snow peas

- 1 cup venison stock
- Combine ginger, garlic, soy sauce, 2 teaspoons of the cornstarch, sesame seeds, and crushed red pepper in a large bowl; add meat and coat well with mixture. Marinate in refrigerator 20 minutes.
