LOVED this recipe - such a great way to do Bok Choy. I love Bok Choy and always just steamed it - but this gives it extra flavour. Many thanks

To be honest, I made so many changes that it was barely the same recipe. =] I cooked the bok choy in the bacon grease. I used honey (about 1 tablespoon) instead of sugar and no chili sauce (I put in about 1 tbsp of tomato paste for the tomato flavor).. and I added the sauce ingredients right to the pan with the bok choy and stirred for a few more minutes. It was almost too sweet for me still, even using a lot less sweet ingredients than written, but otherwise it was really tasty. I'll keep playing around with the recipe for sure!

I loved this dish. I love Bok Choy anyway, and want my husband and kids to reap the health benefits of this delicious vegetable too. My kids were not very fond of this, but I haven't been able to get them to eat anything tangy yet. My husband said it was ok, which is great considering he usually refuses anything green. Instead of spooning the sauce over the bok choy, I mixed it in so all of the bok choy would be covered, to make sure that the flavor of the sauce was in every bite (so my husband would like it) Great recipe hollyfrolly.
