Sautéed Bok Choy

1 head of bok choy (baby is better if you can find it)

Soy Sauce

Sesame Oil

Directions

Add a tablespoon or so of oil in a heated skillet. Place bok choy in pan let cook. Add some soy sauce for flavor, and let bok choy brown a little.

The original pork chop recipe called for ginger but I do not like ginger so I left it out. These pork chops are phenomenal! Sweet, juicy, and tender. Depending on how thick the chops are, they will most likely require a longer cooking time than mentioned above. Be careful not to add the apricot preserves too early because it will burn if you let it cook too long. As a side dish I made sautéed bok choy which is really delicious and goes along with the Asian theme. If you want a starch to go along with these meal, some sort of Asian noodles would be a wonderful addition!
