  1. Stir together the sugar, brown rice vinegar, cornstarch, and cold water in a small bowl.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat. When hot, add the chile peppers; cook and stir until browned, about 4 minutes. Remove from the pan using a slotted spoon. Add the bok choy to the pan and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until wilted and tender. Pour in the vinegar sauce and bring to a boil. Cook and stir briefly until thickened, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat, and season with salt.

Less vinegar would have been better, and really, follow the suggested amount of the chili. Don't go over because it will actually burn!

Way too oily, the cabbage was great but to much oil! I think if I do this again I will try 1/4 or less of the amount of oil that it calls for.
