Ingredients

Directions

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the garlic and bay leaf until the garlic is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chicken stock and white wine, and increase heat to a full boil. Cook the sauce, stirring often, until reduced to 1 cup, about 15 minutes. Remove bay leaf. Lay the bok choy halves, cut sides down, into the sauce, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Serve with sauce spooned over bok choy.

I'm afraid I didn't time things very well when preparing dinner to allow enough time for the stock and wine to reduce sufficiently before the fish I was preparing was done. No matter - this was delicious in spite of it so I can't even imagine how much better it would have been had that reduction been prepared as it was meant to be. I did skip the bay leaf and I would the next time I prepare this as well - the right way.

5 stars. Yummy I used bok choy from the farmers market homemade stock with no salt and reisleing for the wine. It was fantastic. This recipe will be as good as the ingredients you use.

The bay leaf and smashed garlic clove really infuse great flavor into the broth. Do take the time to cook it down because you will have a rich sauce if you do. I did thicken the sauce just a little with a cornstarch slurry. Thoroughly enjoyed this and it was a nice side dish to an Asian-themed dinner today.

These were outstanding! Husband said it's definitely a recipe to make again:) When I made it last night I didn't have any white wine. I wanted to share that it tastes just as great if you substitute the wine for cream. The sauce also tasted great drizzled on the rice. I don't normally write reviews when I modify a recipe but this one is such an outstanding base recipe that I thought it worth sharing.

Sauce took way longer than 15 minutes to reduce and bokchoy took more than 10 minutes to get tender. I think total time was double than written. However I think my baby bokchoy were larger than the average bear. Still a nice recipe and we enjoyed it. Thx Valereee

Made this for boyfriend (not a huge veggie eater and picky) and he loved it...now one of his fav dishes. A def hit! Thinking though of using a slight bit of thickening agent and using the sauce as a stir fry sauce...any thoughts?

Didn't have time to reduce broth but was still delicious. Drizzled Hoisin Sauce overtop before serving. Will definitely make it again!
