I thought this was very good but I did make a few minor changes. I reduced the oil to 1 Tbsp as I was using a non- stick pan and I reduced the lemon juice to just 1 Tbsp thinking I would increase it if need be. I found that for our tastes, the lemon was perfect at just 1Tbsp. The fresh ginger and garlic are what makes this dish! What a nice change of pace for a veggie dish. Thx!
I actually did this in the microwave. I quartered 3 baby Bok choy lenthwise put them in a dish with the chicken broth, red pepper flakes, lemon juice, garlic & ginger (no onion or olive oil) but added some sesame oil and sherry I have my ginger soaking in. Covered and cooked on high for 2 mins and it turned out perfect, so refreshing with the lemon flavour. I served it with To Die for Pork Steaks and it really complemented the richness of the sauce in that recipe. This will become a favourite for me.
Love this recipe - The chili flakes and lemon juice give this recipe a super flavor burst. I had some left over carrots in the fridge so threw them in with the bok chok. I only stir fried the Bok Choy for about 2 minutes, still had some crunch but hot through ad the greens wilted. Thanks Brewster for a recipe that goes in with my favorite veggies
