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.
01In a small bowl, stir together the fish sauce, sugar and 1 teaspoon pepper. Whisk until the sugar dissolves, then set aside. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high, cook the oil, garlic and cilantro stems, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Add the cabbage, mushrooms and peas, then cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables begin to char and soften, 4 to 6 minutes.
