3503. BOK CHOY with BACON and ONIONS

serves four

4 slices bacon
2 pounds baby bok choy
1 teaspoon olive oil
¼ cup diced onion
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt to taste

Cut the 4 slices of bacon into a large dice. Fry it up in a skillet over med-high heat until it's all happy and browned and crispy. Meanwhile, dice the onions and mince the garlic. Wash your bok choy, cut off the root and hard stems, and chop into big pieces. Put the crispy bacon a paper towel and set aside. Add a splash of olive oil to the pan and reduce the heat to med-low. Sauté the onion, red pepper flakes and garlic until they're all nice and sweet and tender and lightly browned. Add the bok choy or whatever greens you like. Cover and cook over low med-heat for about 5 minutes. Then remove the lid, turn the heat back up to medium, and stir it around. Let it cook another few minutes until it's tender. Return the bacon to the pan, mix it up and season to taste. Serve immediately.
