Beef with Bok Choy, Garlic, and Red Peppers

This meal can be prepped and cooked in 25 minutes total - great for a quick dinner after a busy day!


  • 1 pound steak sliced into thin strips (if you have time, marinate it for an hour in soy sauce and Worcestershire)
  • 1/2 bunch of bok choy, washed thoroughly and cut into 1 inch pieces (white and green parts)
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1/4 of an onion, chopped or sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • a few tablespoons of soy sauce and Worcestershire
  • a few shakes of red pepper flakes
  • 1 package dry gravy mixed with 1 cup of cold water
  • noodles or rice - whatever you prefer

  • Start to cook the steak in a large skillet or wok; when it's about halfway cooked, drain the fat
  • Add the soy sauce, Worcestershire, garlic, onions, red pepper flakes, red peppers, and the hard white sections of the bok choy.
  • Add the gravy, reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for 10 minutes
  • Add the leafy green pieces of the bok choy
  • Let simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Serve over rice or noodles.
We served this over cellophane noodles tonight and we both weren't too fond of them...they were a bit slimy and I felt a bit like I was on the show Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern (but I'm a bit weird with funky textures). If anyone knows of a better way of cooking the noodles other than the "soak in boiling water" method the package suggested, please let me know! The steak and veggies were great and next time I'd serve them over rice.
