I recently fell in love with Bok Choy & this is one of my favorite recipes. It is an easy, delicious, healthy & colorful side dish that seems to go with any meal.
FYI: The 1TB of olive oil is an approximation, I usually just eyeball it, so you may need more or less.
And for all you Monk fans..."Adding to the list Bok Choy."
This is an easy stir-fried vegetable dish that can be prepared ahead. My DH and I love its flavor and the cayenne pepper gives it a nice "kick"! Originally from the Time-Life Foods of the World Series, The Cooking of China.
This is a fast and easy recipe for cooking bok choy or baby bok choy. You can adjust the amount of flavor by adding more or less sake/soy sauce mixture (use equal amounts). We've found that adding the sesame oil at the end gives it more sesame flavor, but you could also just cook the bok choy in a mixture of vegetable and sesame oil. When in doubt, it's best to slightly undercook the bok choy.
My mother taught me this basic technique for several vegetables. It can be used also with broccoli and gai lan for example. The result is a crisper texture at the end. The only unauthentic part of the recipe is using garlic salt instead of fresh garlic (but you can easily substitute back!)
The flavor of this was much different than I had expected. You really taste the dijon mustard. I didn't chop up my bok choy just left it in whole leaves and poured the sauce over. I got this on the web and I have only had it warm, but it could be served as a cold side as well.
This is a wonderful side dish for an Asian style entree. Bok choy has a wonderful, crisp texture that is reminiscent of celery. You can easily add shrimp or chicken to make a main dish, but I recommend doubling the sauce if you do so. Simple and yummy:)
