Thai-Style Vegetable Stir-Fry with Garlic and Black Pepper

In the Thai kitchen, raak phak chee kratiem prik Thai is an aromatic, flavor-packed paste of garlic, black pepper and cilantro root. It often is used to season meat and seafood, but in this recipe we combine the ingredients (we substitute cilantro stems for hard-to-find roots) to add punch to a simple vegetable stir-fry. Napa cabbage and mushrooms provide meaty flavor, while snow peas offer color, sweetness and crunch. If you don’t have fish sauce or want to make the dish vegetarian, use an equal amount of low-sodium soy sauce.




Don’t stir the vegetables too often during the first 4 to 6 minutes of cooking. Infrequent stirring allows the vegetables to get a nice amount of charring to mimic the browning of cooking in a hot wok.

Mushrooms got lost in the snow peas.

Pardon the interruption
