Spicy Bok Choy

Serves: 2-4 (depends on the "head" of bok choy you get)

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5-10 minutes

What You Need:

1 Head of Bok Choy, cut into 1 inch pieces (stem and leaves)
2 Pieces Bacon, cut in small pieces
2 t Oil
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
Red Pepper Flakes, to taste
Salt and Pepper, to taste

How To Do It:

Place bacon pieces in pan over medium high heat to render the fat. When bacon is starting to cook, add 1-2 teaspoons of oil. The amount of oil can depend on how much fat the bacon renders. Add garlic and cook 1 minutes to infuse grease and oil with garlic flavor.

Add the bok choy pieces and stir to coat with grease and oil. Lower heat to medium and season with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Cover and let wilt for 3-5 minutes.
