Like the previous comment, I also served this with the Chinese Style Braised Beef (or pork, in my case!) One Pot. Was a lovely addition to the dish and really simply to prepare. I've never served Bok Choi to the kids before, but they thoroughly enjoyed it. Will serve this regularly as an alternative to traditional green sides.
