The bottoms of the bok choy are usually quite sandy and gritty, they need to be cleaned thoroughly before cooking. Simply rinsing under cold water is hard to get all the sand out, since we are not separating the leaves from the stems.

A helpful tip that I learned from my mom is to put the bok choy in a colander in the sink and then fill the sink with water enough to cover the vegetable. Lifting the colander out of the water helps the grit fall to the bottom of the sink (try a few times till there’s no more grit in the bottom of the sink)

Grilled Bok ChoyOnce seasoned, I placed the bok choy cut size down, onto a hot cast iron pan (on medium heat). It is important to not move the bok choy often and leave them in place until a nice char has developed, this takes only a few minutes.

Cast Iron Grilled Bok ChoyWhen there is a nice charr on the cut sizes of the bok choy, it’s time to turn them over to let the other side cook. After they were turned, carefully pour 1/4-1/2 cup of water into the pan. As soon as the cold water meets the hot pan, it turns into steam and helps to steam the bok choy as it disappears.

Grilled Bok Choy -7The grilled bok choy is perfectly great to serve as is. But if you want to give it a bit of a spicy kick, brush it with a few tablespoons of this glaze made from soy, Korean hot pepper paste (Gochujang) and a few other ingredients.

This time, I served it with a boiled egg and garnished with bonito flakes over white rice. But this could also be a side dish that goes well with chicken, steak or other meat dishes in your meal to give it a Asian twist.
