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:)

Good recipe! I separated the whites of the bok choy from the leaves - I used the whole thing and didn't measure. Cooking the white parts first and then adding the greens at the end of the cooking. As others suggested I added sliced baby bella mushrooms, snap peas and some shrimp and doubled the sauce. Very tasty over brown rice. Next time I will add some spice to heat it up a bit.

Very good! could have definately added double the bok choy. I did end up putting about 1 1/2 cups of celery in with the bok choy and added both walnuts and a package of ramen noodles, minus the seasoning packet. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will be making it again soon!

Yum, yum, and yum is all I have to say. I've never cooked with Bok Choy. I'm so glad this was the first recipe I tried!!! My spouse even said "Nice dish!" (and to hear that from my picky eater says a lot!). I added some asparagus spears I needed to use up and I thought the sauce thickened perfectly.This one is being added to the recipe book and will make again! Thanks for sharing.
