Stir Fry Chinese Celery

Stir Fry Chinese Celery
Serves: Ready In:


  • 250g Chinese celery
  • 1 tbsp vegetable or peanut oil, for stir-frying
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1-2 tsp chopped red chilies
  • 2 tsp Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chicken broth or water


  1. Separate the celery stalks. Rinse the celery, pat dry with paper towels. Chop the stalks and leaves into 1-inch pieces, cutting the stalks on the diagonal. 
  2. Preheat the wok on medium-high heat and add oil. When the oil is hot, add the chopped garlic, chilies and the Chinese celery. Stir fry until the Chinese celery starts to turn a darker green (about 2 minutes), splashing with the rice wine or sherry while cooking.
  3. Add the soy sauce, sugar and 1 tablespoon of the chicken broth. Continue stir-frying until the Chinese celery is tender but not soft, adding the remaining 1/2 tablespoon chicken broth if needed. Serve hot.
