Salty. Sweet, Spicy-Heat Bok Choy - ButterYum

What can I say, I love the salty, sweet, spicy heat flavors in this Asian-inspired bok choy.  Not a fan of the heat?  No problem, just omit the sriracha and you'll still have an awesome side dish that everyone will think came from the local take-out restaurant.

Start by prepping the bok choy by trimming the ends and separating the stalks.  I like to get heads that are no longer than 8 inches in length.  Sometimes there's a bit of dirt between the stalks so rinse them well.
