    Zurie's Note:

    Not a stir-fry! East meets West in a simple side dish using bok choy given "body" with chopped potatoes, onions, and a little extra flavour. This is a very basic way of using Oriental cabbages other than in a stir-fry with soy sauce. The dish can be considerably enhanced if chopped bacon is added with the onion, and you might also want to up the spices by adding a chopped, seeded hot pepper or black pepper. Very tasty, and you'll never wonder whether to use those white ribs again: they are very useable!!

    1. 1
      Peel and chop onion. Cut off only the root end off the bok choy, then separate the leaves, and wash thoroughly, as soil often sticks to the thick white stems.
    2. 2
      Peel potatoes and chop, and prepare ginger and garlic.
    3. 3
      Fry the onions in the oil, stirring, over high heat until they soften, then add the balsamic vinegar and stir. (Add a little more oil if necessary).
    4. 4
      Add the chopped potatoes. Lower heat, but stir frequently to prevent sticking. After about 5 minutes add the ginger, garlic and salt.
    5. 5
      Slice the bok choy from the stem parts to the green leaves, including all the white stems. Add to the pan. Stir, add the salt, and let saute without a lid for a while to prevent liquid forming.
    6. 6
      After about 10 minutes turn heat to low and put on a lid at an angle. Gently fry until the vegetables are cooked, but it's nice if the bok choy stems are slightly al dente still.
    7. 7
      As suggested: although this dish is quite flavourful as a side dish, you could add chopped bacon and a number of other ingredients, even mature cheese strewn over when it's cooked. Add black pepper or nutmeg, to taste.

      I thought this was just okay, kinda bland for me and the ginger seemed to be a little strong. Overall it was okay nothing I would rave over, I had to add more salt and throw a little pepper in which for me is odd because I don't care for much salt.

      Loved this. I did not have an onion so I added 1/4 tsp ( just a oinch of sugar ) to counteract the vinegar. It was cooked perfectly and well seasoned. Thanks

      I know this is meant to be a side dish, but it makes a great meatless main dish! I love bok choy and I thought it went well with the diced potatoes and onion. I diced my potatoes fairly small to insure they'd get soft in time. I doubled the garlic and instead of adding additional oil as it cooked, I used a tbsp or so of white wine to keep things moist. Thanx for sharing this; I'll make it again.
