Cooking Beijing Bok Choy

In this Asian-inspired episode of Cooking With Michele Vieux, the CrossFit Invictus coach takes on baby bok choy.

The vegetable, Vieux explains, tastes similar to cabbage.

“They’re a little juicier than cabbage and not quite as cabbage-y, if that makes any sense,” she says. “So they’re going to take on whatever flavor you give them.”

First, she cuts the bok choy in half “in a way that we feel like they’re going to stay together as much as possible.”

After giving them a good rinse and drying them, she places the pieces in a hot pan with coconut oil. Next, she sprinkles them with fresh ginger, fresh garlic, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. After about 3 minutes on high, it’s time to flip them over. Turn the heat down a bit, add a dash of coconut amino, wait another 3 minutes and you’re done.

Patience, Jeff! Just trying to tease you enough to keep you watching the upcoming episodes. The coconut-crusted salmon with grilled pineapple is one of the next ones you'll see and I think you'll find it surprisingly easy.

I love these cooking shoots. I just wish there were more of them. I have seen allot of the Massey stuff and it always looks good, just not enough!!

Some of us with families, jobs, outside demands, trying to stay fit are struggling enough to balance all of that, much less alone adding the time to try and figure out a good diet regimen. It'd be nice to be able to say, "What to eat for dinner this week?" BAM crossfit journal, lemme go to the store and get a few things, DONE.... now where's that remote??? :)
