Probably would add some red bell pepper slices the next time just for a little sweetness and color. Very nice side dish and quick too! Read More

We do a food co-op and got a head of bok choy and no idea how to prepare it. This recipe gave a great, quick method to cook it, as well as enough description for me to cut/prep it easily. I do not have Chinese five-spice, but added 2 T. Thai sweet chili sauce instead. Wow! I did add green peppers and omitted the onion; I think that would have been a bit much with the onion-y flavor of the bok choy. My kids were not fans, but the hubby LOVED it. Thank you so much for a great starting point! Read More

I really like this recipe because 1) I love bok choy and 2) this is super easy. I didn't have any Chinese Five Spice, so I used some soy sauce for flavor. I also used peanut oil because that's all I had in the pantry (no butter - out of that, too.) I really, really like the cashews in this, also. Yummy and healthy - can't ask for much more! Read More

I made this as a low carb main dish. I substituted monk fruit sweetener for the sugar. Sauteed thin sliced sirloin first then added it back to the vegetables when the recipe was almost done. Read More

I bought bok choy on a whim at the grocery store but had never prepared it before. I used this recipe mainly for an idea of the proportions of seasonings. This was a hit for my family, and very easy to prepare, even with two distracting kids in the kitchen. I use chinese five spice a lot in my cooking, and my whole family, even my three year old, enjoys the flavor. I cooked two cubed chicken breasts in a skillet with oil, salt, pepper and five spice, then removed the chicken and most of the juice from the pan. I then cooked the bok choy, onion, and one sliced red pepper that I needed to use up, according to this recipe, adding the chicken back to the pan after five minutes, and cooking everything together for 3 minutes. I was a little worried that 8 minutes would be too long to cook the greens, but with the thicker stem, the sliced onion, and the red pepper, 8 minutes was perfect to get everything nice an cooked without being mushy. I'll hang on to this recipe to refer to the oil/five spice/sugar ratio and cook times for future dinners. Read More

Yum! I haven't tried the Chinese 5 spice powder before. It's really good and just the right flavor for the bok choy. We added broccoli and carrots to our mix as I needed to use them up. The sugar was just the right touch too. I was hesitant about that and am glad I went ahead and used it. Yum! Yum! Yum! Thank you very much for this recipe. We'll be making it again. Read More

I made my own Chinese 5 spice with 1/8 tsp of fennel seed, anise seed, clove, cinnamon, and coarse ground black pepper. I also added a pinch of dried lemongrass. I added a carrot as well. Read More
