Braised Bok Choy

I didn't expect this dish to be much of a hit in my family, but they asked me to make it again soon. Even my veggie-averse 10 year old loved it!


  • 1 cup 99% fat-free chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 medium clove garlic, minced
  • 3/4 pound bok choy, trimmed and chopped (leaves only)- 6 to 8 cups
  • 1/2 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. Bring broth and butter and garlic to a simmer in a deep, large skillet. Add bok choy and simmer (covered) until tender, about 5 minutes. Use tongs to transfer bok choy to a serving dish and cover to keep warm.
  2. Boil broth mixture until reduced to 1/4 cup, then stir in sesame oil and red pepper flakes. Pour mixture over bok choy and serve immediately.
