This is a very simple side dish that you can make to compliment fried rice, chicken, fish, etc. I love it because its tasty and very fast.
- One 6.3 ounce package of baby Bok Choy (can be found at Trader Joe's)
- 3 tablespoons Sesame Oil (can be found at Trader Joe's)
- 1-2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
- 1 medium clove of garlic finely chopped (I included sliced pieces in the photo for decorative purposes)
- ½ teaspoon toasted sesame seeds (optional. Not shown in this photo because we were out of sesame seeds)
- Wash the Bok Choy really well. Sometimes it has some dirt in it so check the inner sides of the leaves as you wash them. Dry well. Finely chop the garlic and toss in a pre-heated skillet (medium high) with the Sesame Oil. Cook the garlic for about 1 minute (just before it turns brown because you don't want it to burn). Toss the Bok Choy in and with tongs coat the leaves with the oil and garlic. Partially cover the pan (allows steam to evaporate) so the oil doesn't splatter everywhere and so the Bok Choy cooks. Cook for about 4-5 minutes (depending on how crunchy you like the stems). Add the Soy Sauce (add more if you love Soy Sauce but make sure you taste as you go. It can be overdone pretty quickly). Let simmer for 30 seconds to 1 minute then turn off the stove and serve.
