A quick and tasty dish from the hot mouth of the dragon with only three ingredients! Flowering Chives, Pork Liver and Garlic

Flowering Chives are all year round favorites for their mild garlicky flavor, and can be purchased inexpensively at almost any Asian market.

In Thailand we like to fry them with pork, pork liver or shrimp. These flowering chives are actually the unopened bud stems of garlic chives, also known as Chinese chives.

Flowering chives have that lovely mild garlic chive flavor with sweet core inside the long fibered green stem. When choosing flowering chives, you should look for unopened flower buds with a thick and juicy steam. This will provide a full flavor and a soft bit through the fibrous stem.

  1. 200gr Flowering chives, cut into 4cm (1.5″) long pieces.
