I had a couple of extra head of baby bok choy from the stir fry earlier this week. I needed a way to fix it other than just steaming it or something equally as boring. I found this recipe on AllRecipes, a place where I find many good recipes. After I tasted the recipe, I wished I had more bok choy. One serving was simply not enough. If you have never tried bok choy, you will certainly like it this way….

Bacon Bok Choy

  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 2 pounds baby bok choy
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • salt to taste
Fry bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crispy. Remove bacon and drain the fat, reserving one tablespoon of the grease in the skillet. Add the olive oil, onion, red pepper flakes and garlic. Cook and stir over medium heat until the onions are starting to be tender. Add the bok choy, and place a lid on the pan. Let cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the lid; cook and stir until the bok choy is tender but still crunchy, about 2 minutes. Stir in the bacon, and season with salt. Serve piping hot!
