Notes

Prevent Chewy Kailan 
If you have older kailan with thick and firm stems:
  1. You could cut the stems away from the leaves, slice them in half lengthwise or quarters if too thick, and pre-cook them in the microwave oven until tender before stir-frying with the leaves.
  2. You could cut the stems on a bais to make thin and large slices that can be stir-fried separately for several minutes before adding the leaves.
