I was sitting at home watching a cooking show while hungry. That's the equivalent of shopping while hungry. At any rate, I started getting inspired by all this great Greek food, and the new chef that had just started talking about what he was going to cook.

Turning to my son, I said, "I'm hungry. How about I fix some special rice?" Special rice for my son, is rice warmed up in butter and Sazon. So I went to fix some rice, but some ideas were playing in my head and I decided to experiment a bit.


  • 1 bundle Bok Choy, washed
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup White Cooking wine
  • 1 - 5 cans Water
  • 1 - 2 Garlic, chopped
  • 1 - 2 Onion, chopped
  • 2 1/2 packets Sazon
  • 1 can Red Tomato Paste
  • 4 packets Duck sauce
  • 1/2 cup Oyster Sauce

Do you find the tasty Bok Choy delicious?

I went into the kitchen and started grabbing some items from the frig. Garlic...I definitely needed that; and the sweet onion (white); that would be handy too. I grabbed out my entire bundle of Bok Choy and washed it. I decided to cut the onion and the Bok Choy in small cubes and the garlic in large pieces. I threw a stick of butter in the pan and began to saute these items together.

Then I thought I'd throw some red tomato paste into the mix. I used the entire little can. I then added 4-5 (little) cans of water. But...I really didn't want a tomato taste to this, so I grabbed some Vino Seco (white cooking wine) and threw some of that in. I'd say about 1/4 to 1/2 a cup. I already had some previously cooked rice, so I put some of that in.

By this time, the garlic, sweet onions and Bok Choy were getting soft. All that was cooking for a while with the juices simmering. I kicked in 2.5 packets of Sazon and 4 of those duck sauce packets from the Chinese restaurant. Lastly, I added about 1/2 cup of oyster sauce. I let all of that simmer for about 20 minutes, and it was done.

When I tasted it, I couldn't believe what a nice blend of flavors it was! It was fantastic! I ate my fill and wanted more, but saved the rest for the following day. On that day, I took it to church when I went to meet my friend, Tommy, and he said it was "the bomb!" So if you want a light treat, try this out and let me know how you like it.
