Simple Bok Choy and Tuna Simmer

Simple Bok Choy and Tuna Simmer

This super-easy bok choy simmer is a standard in our home when I've got leftover bok choy to use up.

Ingredients: serves about 4

Bok choy
half a large one, or a full-sized small one (about 1kg)
Tuna (I recommend maguro)
1 small can (drained or not, your preference ♪)
Sugar
2.5 to 3 tablespoons
Granulated Japanese style dashi (soup base)
2 tablespoons
Mirin
50ml
Sake
50ml
Soy sauce
50ml

Steps

1. Wash and cut the bok choy.
2. Add all the flavoring ingredients except for soy sauce and the drained tuna in a pot, and boil over low to medium heat. Water will come out from the bok choy, so there's no need to add any.
3. Once it's come to a boil, add soy sauce. If you taste the stock and adjust the flavor to your liking, you're sure not to fail.
4. Boil on medium-low heat for about 10 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool to combine the flavors.
