Slow Cooker Bok Choy with Sesame and Garlic Sauce

Bok Choy should not be washed until just before you cook with it. Wash it, trim about an inch off the stalk and add the leaves to a slow cooker with a sesame and garlic sauce. Cook and serve with white rice. Mirin, also called rice wine, can be found in the Asian food section of most grocery stores and in most Asian markets.
