Guisadong Pechay is one of those dishes we always pair with anything fried (fish, pork or chicken), a very flavourful vegetable side dish that complements any fried mains that you may have, similar to bok choy in oyster sauce, but the flavours are a bit distinct as it comes from shrimp paste.


  • 6 bunches bok choy, chopped
  • 1 cup pork belly, cubed
  • 2 tbsp bagoong (shrimp paste)
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 small red onion
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • oil


  1. In a wok, add oil and sauté garlic and onions.
  2. Add pork cubes and stir fry for 3 minutes.
  3. Add bok choy and stir fry for 1 minute.
  4. Mix together cornstarch, chicken stock and bagoong. Pour into the wok then bring to boil and simmer for 2 minutes.
  5. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
