Recipe Redo: Beef with Bok Choy and Red Peppers

A couple of years ago I made beef with bok choy and red peppers -
here is my original recipe.

The original is good, but since then I have made it a few more times so I'm posting a revised recipe.


  • 1 lb sliced beef; I buy the top round strips for stir fry
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 sm onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 bunch of bok choy, chopped; bottom and top cut off and discarded
  • 1 14 oz can low sodium beef broth (or 1 package dry gravy mix mixed with 1 c water)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Hoison sauce
  • 1 tsp cornstarch


  • Optional: make a marinade of some Worcestershire, soy sauce, Hoison, and garlic, Marinate beef for a few hours. If you don't have time to marinate it, toss the beef with approximately 2 tbsp each of Worcestershire and soy sauce.
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat
  • Add beef and saute until about halfway cooked.
  • Add garlic and onions, saute a few minutes.
  • Add red peppers and bok choy, saute for one minute.
  • Mix 3/4 of the can of broth with the Hoison; add to the pan and bring to a simmer. Let simmer, uncovered, for about 5-8 minutes.
  • Mix the rest of the broth with the cornstarch and pour into the pan to thicken the sauce. Let simmer for a few more minutes.
  • Serve over rice or noodles.

I like this recipe better because of the use of Hoison sauce. It's also so easy to make, and only takes 20-25 minutes.

  1. I'm so glad you like the chopsticks! There were so many sets for sale but these were definitely the most beautiful. All I can think when I look at your dish is how hard it must have been to pick up the rice! Sticky rice was definitely created for a reason!
