Bok Choy Recipes
Sweet-and-Sour Bok Choy
Oyster sauce and a pinch of sugar add caramel flavor and color to the bok choy. A little butter turns the sauce into a glaze. This side would be excellent with a spicy main like a Szechuan-style stir-fry or a chile-laden sauce for meat or fish.
Tahini Chicken with Bok Choy and Mango Salad
Tahini and honey create a beautifully charred crust on grilled chicken thighs in seconds. Sliced baby bok adds plenty of crunch and a faintly nutty flavor to the slaw. You can use fresh naval orange sections in place of the mango.
Shiitake-and-Sesame Bok Choy
Shiitake mushrooms are thinner and denser than cremini or button mushrooms; they’ll brown quickly in the pan without releasing too much liquid. These mushrooms also have a rich, meaty flavor that boosts the bok choy and marries well with the toasted sesame oil.
Chicken-and-Mushroom Dumplings with Bok Choy
We keep these dumplings weeknight-doable by using easy-to-find wonton wrappers (look for them near the tofu) and the simplest folding method. To make this a communal meal, set ou the steamer baskets on a towel so your family can help themselves. If your bok choy is larger than what we call for, cut it into quarters so it will fit in the baskets.
Ginger-Chile Bok Choy
The secret to tender, lightly bronzed bok choy is to brown first, then reduce the heat and gently sauté until tender. We kick up the heat with red Fresno chile; use just one or omit and double the garlic depending on what you like. Mirin is a sweet rice wine that will counter the spice. You can sub 1 tablespoon unseasoned rice vinegar combined with 1/2 teaspoon sugar.
