Recipe by Just Call Me Martha

This is a quick and easy dish that can be made with Baby Bok Choy or regular Bok Choy, chopped. I found this recipe on a several different websites when searching for different ways to cook some Bok Choy that I picked up at an Asian market.

I also used almonds but also some cashews and substituted noodles for rice. Next time I'll use a little less peppercorn and a little more bok choy. I made the full 4 portions but it really only served two. Overall, delicious! I would definitely make it again. The sauce is fantastic!
