    This is definitely a great recipe. The bok choy is outstanding! I only cooked it for 7 minutes I believe, but my steamer doesn't have feet so it was somewhat sitting in the boiling broth. I don't like spicy foods very much and I've made it both with and without the red pepper. The pepper gave it a nice flavor but I like it better without. The meatballs were good but I also like this bok choy with salmon & coconut rice (Slow-Roasted Salmon with Bok Choy and Coconut Rice, 11/05). My husband liked it and I will definitely make it again.

    My husband and I love this recipe. I even cook the Baby Bok Choy with other recipes. We like the spicy touch. This is a recipe that I make over and over.

    Excellent meatball recipe. I used 99% fat free ground turkey and I baked the meatballs in the oven at 400 degrees for 18 minutes instead of frying them. I served the meatballs with Sweet Chicken Chile Sauce. Definitely will make again. (I did not make the baby bok choy).

    The flavors just wowed us! This was a great find to use up some bok choy I had on hand. The only thing is, the author did not finish writing the recipe! For those wondering as we did, add the sherry/cornstarch mixture to the juices used to steam bok choy. Cook on low-med until reduced and syrupy. Toss with meatballs. Other notes: I used Gallo vermouth instead of broth because I forgot to buy broth. It was GREAT and it reduced the sodium. Yum! Yum! Yum!

    This recipe piqued my interest but I wanted to change it up a bit. I used more rice, soy sauce instead of salt, cilantro ,squirt of sratche ( hot sauce) and no water.Also, I baked it as recommended by another reviewer. I baked at 400 degrees for 25 min. Also , I keep it simple. I steam the vegs with soy sauce, the water that sticks on the veg and rice wine.simple concept and excellent. The juice was great with the meatballs! I usually use Kale or Bok Choy or Gailan as my veggies. Next time I may add ginger to the meatball mix for a little more zest! My boyfriend loved this recipe and wants me to make it again!

    Wow!! this was really tasty!! cooked meatballs in my wok. used 1/4 cup measure, and it made about 13. used regular bok choy and all broth instead of part water. think i will add some kale to the leftovers. served with rice noodles. will make again. might try baking meatballs as other reviewer did.
