Serves: 4 // Prep time: 15 minutes | Marinating time: 1 to 2 hours | Grilling time: about 5 minutes | Special equipment: perforated grill pan

Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 4 baby bok choy
  • .5 oz fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 20 large shiitake mushrooms

Oil and Spices

  • .25 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil

Condiments

  • .5 cups low-sodium soy sauce

Wine / Beer / Spirits

  • 2 fl oz dry sherry

Other

  • 1 tbsp golden brown sugar

Special Equipment

  • perforated grill pan

Ingredients

Marinade

  • ⅓ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon packed golden brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 4 slices peeled fresh ginger, each ⅛ inch thick, crushed
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 4 baby bok choy, larger ones cut in half
  • 20 large shiitake mushrooms

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl whisk the marinade ingredients until the sugar is dissolved.

  2. Plunge the bok choy into a bowl of water and shake to clean off the dirt nestled between the leaves. Wipe the mushrooms clean with a damp cloth or paper towel and then remove and discard the stems.

  3. Place the vegetables in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade and let stand at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours, turning occasionally.

  4. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F) and preheat the grill pan.

  5. Remove the vegetables from the bag and reserve the marinade. When the grill pan is hot, place the bok choy and mushrooms onto the pan, spreading them out in a single layer. Grill over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the bok choy is crisp-tender and the shiitakes are heated through, about 5 minutes, turning once or twice and basting occasionally with the reserved marinade. Serve hot.

Great little smoker

I've owned the "cheapo" smokers before and I got this for Christmas. It is a bit smaller than the other 2 models, so you aren't going to pack a ton of ribs or a huge cut of meat into it. But it works extremely well. It holds the temperature great. I've used it several times now in freezing winds with no cover, and with a chimney and a half of charcoal it can go for several hours.
