Is celery an ingredient normally found in Asian stir fry? or is that an American addition in Chinese fast food? (Panda Express) And if so, or not, do you like/approve of celery in stir fry?

It's more American.


I don't mind it though. It seems it got subbed in for celery cabbage somewhere along the way.

It's just a substitute for Chinese celery.

Celery is less pungent, but the flavour profile is exactly the same.

I said celery cabbage. It's an ingredient term often used in the cuisine in English.

I use it occasionally at home, adds a nice texture element. On the rare occasions I eat at Panda Express I almost always get the black pepper chicken which is pretty heavy on the celery.

Hmm, maybe a monthly challenge theme?
