    We enjoyed this over rice. The change I made was skipping the green onions and added frozen peas. I also didn't have as much of the bok chow as indicated and it was the baby bok hoy which still worked out well. Delicious and enjoyed by all.

    Family loved it! Substituted ponzu for soy sauce, and added orange sweet pepper. Easy and delicious.

    Great flavor! I didn't have oyster sauce, but used reduced sodium soy sauce and even the kids loved it! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    This recipe is delish! My hubby said it may have been one of the best meals I've ever made and I'm a fairly good cook (If I do say so myself :) I did cut back the oil just because I like to cut back the fat calories where ever I can. One change I did make was to sweat a 1/2 an yellow onion cut into rings and some sliced mushrooms before adding the bok choy. It added more veggies and the taste was amazing!
