Celery Stir-Fry

Celery is one of my favorite vegetables and contains nutrients that promotes good health. Read more HERE. Celery is delicious raw, but I do like to stir fry it a little and still keep the crunch of the celery. 

Here is a yummy and appetizing way to stir fry vegetables. You can use green beans or asparagus instead of celery here. Cooking time might be different with the use of different vegetables though.




  • 2-1/2 Cups Celery, Sliced 1/3” Diagonally
  • 100g Ground Pork
  • 2 Tbsp Chopped Preserved/Salted Radish
  • 2-3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp Oil
  • 1 Tsp Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 Tsp Dark Soy Sauce
  • White Pepper


Heat pan and add oil. Meanwhile quickly rinse the radish and give it another rough chop. When oil is hot, add radish and garlic. Sauté over medium high heat till garlic and radish are slightly brown and fragrant. This should take about 5 minutes.

Then add ground pork, soy sauce, dark soy sauce and a dash (or two) of white pepper. Stir fry and break ground pork small pieces over high heat. This should take about 2-3 minutes to completely cook the meat.

Finally, add celery and coat celery with meat mixture. Continue stir-frying for about 1 minute. I like my celery crunchy; sauté longer if you want your celery softer. Transfer onto serving plate and serve immediately with warm rice. This should serve 2-3.
