Sarah West

2 cloves garlic, chopped
½ teaspoon grated ginger
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 lb. bok choy
2 tablespoons broth or water
1 tablespoon mirin
2 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Wash bok choy thoroughly. Separate stalks from leaves, cut stalks into ½ inch pieces and coarsely chop leaves.
  2. Heat oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and ginger, saute briefly. Add bok choy stalks, stir to coat with oil, then add broth or water and mirin. Saute for a few minutes, add bok choy leaves.
  3. Lower heat to medium and cover. Let braise for about five minutes until stalks are tender. Remove cover, add soy sauce, bring heat up to medium-high and saute for a minute or two. Remove from heat and serve.
