How to make it

  • Cut off the stems off the bok choy (white part only)
  • Separate the bok choy branches and cut away.
  • Wash the stems and leaves and dry them.
  • Heat the oil in a wide skillet or wok over medium heat and stir in the onion, garlic, and chilies or pepper flakes.
  • Stir for 5 minutes or until the onion starts to turn translucent.
  • Stir in the ginger and the cashews, turn the heat up to high, and add the bok choy stems.
  • Stir or toss over high heat for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the hoisin sauce (optional), sesame oil, and soy sauce and cook for 1 minute more.
  • Note:If the bok choy is swimming around in a lot of liquid this sometimes happens if your stove isn't hot enough to quickly boil down the liquids to a glaze- take the bok choy out of the pan with a slotted spoon and boil down the liquids in the pan until there are only about 2 Tbs of thick glaze remaining. Put the bok choy back in the pan, stir for a minute to coat it, serve immediately. Goes well with plain white rice.

    So I made your recipe this evening as a side dish. It was totally awesome. Thumbs up by all members of the family. One question your list of ingredients you don't have soy sauce listed, but in your instructions you say 'stir in hoisin sauce, sesame oil and soy sauce" much soy sauce do your recommend? I added a few splashes...maybe totaling a tablespoon. What do you think?
