"Baby bok choy have a milder taste than the full-grown deal and are also more tender. I just cook them in some chicken broth and garlic, and serve them with rice and fish. My family enjoys the taste of garlic, so we use quite a bit. Feel free to adjust accordingly."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

minced garlic, or to taste
2 (14 ounce) cans
baby bok choy, trimmed
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
I absolutely loved the outcome of this, but in my mind 1/4 cup of minced garlic and 2 cans of chicken broth was SO unnecessary and excessive. As the recipe suggests, I used minced garlic to taste, probably a third of what was called for, and only enough chicken broth necessary to allow the bok choy to steam. I poured enough broth into my large skillet to a depth of about 1/2 inch. Otherwise a great, basic reference recipe for cooking whole baby bok choy, one I know I'll come back to.
Yummy! gave it three stars since I modified it. Instead of butter I used two tablespoons of olive oil, six cloves garlic chopper, 1/4 cup chicken broth and added a handfull of chopped arugula - it was awesome! I needed to clean out the veggie drawer and this was a great combo!
I love baby bok choy! But 2 cans of chicken broth is "too much" for 6 heads of baby bok choy so I used an eyeball amount, probably 3/4 cup filled up to the sides of the bok choy. Also I did not add the entire 1/4 cup of minced garlic, only enough to suit my tastes. I lightly seasoned with hawaiian salt, fresh ground black pepper and fresh squeezed lemon right before serving. Delicious! The fresh lemon really adds a lovely zip to the baby bok choy without taking away from the broth, garlic and butter. I 'd prepare this side dish again, the same exact way, with other types of main or asian themed dishes. Tonight I served this along with,"Adobo Chicken with Ginger," and "Roasted Corn with Garlic Rice," all from this website.
I've been cooking baby bok choy this way for a long time . . . and, I agree -- serving with fish and rice makes a lovely meal. It's so easy and sooo tasty!
this was very simple and good- i did cut my bok choy up before placing in skillet.
This was my first taste of bok choy, but I had to modify the recipe. I used just enough liquid to steam the greens in a fry pan and skipped the butter. Delicious!!!
Yummy. I had never had baby bok choy before and I thought I'd give it a try with this recipe. Very tasty, I will be making this again.
I'd never cooked with bok choy before so had no clue. This looked tasty and sounded easy, and we were not disappointed! Very easy and very tasty - two important qualities I look for in a recipe! Although, I lessened the garlic a bit and added some ginger and grated carrots! Yum!
