    1. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the cooking grate.
    2. In a bowl, mix butter, garlic granules, paprika and 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper. Slice the bottom off the head of pak choi and remove and clean the stalks. Sprinkle seasoned salt and 1 teaspoon of black pepper over both sides of the stalks.
    3. Lay the pak choi stalks on the preheated barbecue. Brush with seasoned butter mixture, cover the barbecue and cook until the pak choi stalks show barbecue marks and the leaves are crisp at the edges, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the pak choi, brush with butter mixture, cover and barbecue the other sides. Brush with any remaining butter mixture and remove to a serving plate

    I only had baby bok choy, but tried to make the dish anyway. I cooked it for far less time, basically just enough time to get them on the grill, butter them, flip them over, butter them, then cook for a little bit. Some of the leaves did get a little burnt, but it was still amazingly delicious!  -  22 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The key here is hot heat and fast. It keeps the thick part of the bok choy nice and crunchy and the leafy part crispy like a potato chip. Nice blend of seasonings. I used baby boy choy which I cut in half lengthwise. This is a make-again.  -  16 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I could not believe how good this was! I put the bok choy into a grilling basket and kept stirring and basting it with the seasoned butter as it grilled. It took up less room on the grill that way  -  31 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
