We don't usually use bok choy in Korean food, but I like to prepare it in a muchim (무침) style, where I use typical Korean seasonings. It's fresh tasting, spicy and prepared like an instant kimchi.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • baby bok choy, about 2 lbs
  • 1 tbsp red pepper powder (gochugaru 고추가루)
  • 2 - 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • roasted sesame seeds, ground
  • 2 stems scallions, chopped up
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • pinch of salt
  • sugar to taste

Recipe Steps:

  • Wash the bok choy thoroughly.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add some salt. Dunk the bok choy in very quickly, then put it into a strainer and rinse with cold water. Let it drain.
  • Make a chili garlic sauce using gochugaru, garlic, sesame seeds, fish sauce and scallions. Add salt and sugar to taste.
  • In a large bowl, toss the bok choy well with the chili garlic sauce. Taste and add more salt/sugar if you like. You can also add a little bit of sesame oil for flavor, but if you do, you should consume the bok choy within a day or two.

i love bok choy! it's one of my favorite vegetables to prepare because it's easy to clean and it is cheap and affordable at Chinese supermarkets.
