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.

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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!!! Read More

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! Read More

This was my first time making bok choy and we liked this a lot. I followed the recipe as written and found the amount of garlic to be appropriate for our tastes. Also I did not find that there was too much chicken broth for the amount of bok choy I felt it was just right to get it cooked through and slightly wilted. Read More
