April 2013 Recipe of the Month

Braised Baby Bok Choy with Ginger


  • 2 pounds baby bok choy, havled and/or quartered depending on the size
  • 4 medium shallots cut in slices
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons pure sesame oil
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger, or more to taste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • Freshly ground black pepper


1. Heat the two oils in a large sauté pan. You may have to cook the recipe in two or three batches.

2. Add the shallots, ginger and garlic, stir frying for about 1-2 minutes. Do not let the garlic brown.

3. Add the bok choy and stir fry for about a minute to coat it completely with the oil. Then add the soy sauce and chicken broth. Stir fry for another minute or so, then cover the pan tightly with the lid (or foil). Reduce the heat and let it braise for another 4-5 minutes, until slightly tender.

4. Garnish with freshly ground black pepper before serving.

Yield 4-6 servings

Note: If you can't find baby bok choy, mature bok choy will work, too. Just cut it into smaller pieces and let braise for slightly longer, just until it's tender.
