  • 2 strips bacon - cooked crispy and chopped
  • 2 lbs Bok Choy
  • 2 Tbs vegetable Oil
  • 4 clove garlic - minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger - grated
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper
  • 2 Tbs soy sauce
  • ½ tsp sesame Oil
  • salt to taste


  • Cook your bacon and set it aside. Heat 2 tbs vegetable oil in a skillet over medium high heat on the stove top. While that is heating prepare your Bok Choy (I like simply cutting it in half after washing it well - but you may want to peel the individual leaves off and cook them that way - either way is fine). As the oil heats, add the garlic and fresh ginger to the pan and allow it to cook for about a minute and then add the bok choy. Cook the bok choy for about 1-2 minutes per side until it starts to wilt. Add the red peppers (I used chipotle pepper, but red peppers is fine). Stir a couple more times and remove from the heat.
  • Plate the bok choy and dress with the soy sauce and sesame oil. Sprinkle the cooked garlic pieces over the top. Crumble the bacon you cooked earlier and sprinkle over the top.


Keep in mind that this recipe works for baby bok choy the best.  Large adult bok choy is BIG and won't fit in the pan as easily.
