    You can easily do this recipe inside by using a large frypan and cooking a few stalks at a time. The leaves won't get crispy like they do on the barby, but the taste is still delicious!

    What seems so wrong is so right:-) I used baby bok choy and cut them down the middle and cooked the whole halves. I used real garlic not powder. I totally recommend this!  -  24 Jun 2010


    I only had baby bok choy, but tried to make the dish anyway. I cooked it for far less time, basically just enough time to get them on the grill, butter them, flip them over, butter them, then cook for a little bit. Some of the leaves did get a little burnt, but it was still amazingly delicious!  -  22 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The key here is hot heat and fast. It keeps the thick part of the bok choy nice and crunchy and the leafy part crispy like a potato chip. Nice blend of seasonings. I used baby boy choy which I cut in half lengthwise. This is a make-again.  -  16 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
