Servings: 4


  • 1/2 cup  soy sauce
  • cup  sake
  • cup  sugar
  • 1 inch  knob ginger, roughly sliced
  • garlic cloves, roughly sliced
  • scallions, roughly chopped
  • pounds  baby bok choy, rinsed, dried, and split in half lengthwise
  • tablespoons  olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Combine the soy sauce, sake, sugar, ginger, garlic, and scallions in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over high heat stirring until the sugar dissolves. Reduce to a bare simmer and cook until sauce is syrupy and reduced to about 1/2 cup, about 20 minutes. Strain and discard solids. Reserve sauce.
  • Light one chimney full of charcoal. When all the charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, pour out and arrange the coals on one side of the charcoal grate. Set cooking grate in place, cover grill and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Clean and oil the grilling grate.
  • Toss bok choy with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on hot side of grill, cut side down and cook until lightly charred, about 45 seconds. Flip and cook until second side is charred, 45 seconds longer. Transfer to cooler side of grill, cover, and continue cooking until tender all the way through with a light crisp bite, 1 to 3 minutes longer. Transfer to a large plate, drizzle with sauce, and serve.
