I have to admit that cooking with greens has not been a strong point for me. I love using them raw in salads, etc. But cooking them isn’t something I have a lot of experience with so I’m trying to improve on that. A couple of years ago one of our customers told us how much she loved using our mustard greens with her fried potatoes. So I decided I would try to do something similar with the Hon-Tsai-Tai.
Seems like I’m always in a hurry so I thought I would get my stir fry skillet out and see if stir-frying the potatoes would save me some time. I think it may have saved me some time, but could probably have the same results with a regular skillet.
Stir Fried Potatoes with Hon-Tsai-Tai
1 bunch Hon-Tsai-Tai
4-5 medium sized potatoes
1 medium onion
plain sesame oil
toasted sesame oil
Peel the potatoes and cut into small cubes. Wash the Hon-Tsai-Tai and cut into small pieces. Cut onion in half and then cut into strips.
Heat the plain sesame oil over high heat. Just enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the potatoes and “stir fry” them until they start to become tender. Add more oil as needed to keep them from sticking to the pan.
Keep a close eye on the potatoes and stir often so they don’t burn on the bottom.
When the potatoes start to become tender add the onions and continue stirring until the onions and potatoes are at the desired tenderness.
Add the Hon-Tsai-Tai and stir until the greens are slightly wilted.
Sprinkle with Kosher salt and serve.
I was really happy with how this turned out. We really enjoyed them. There were no left overs!
