  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 6 ounces beef sirloin, trimmed of fat and very thinly sliced (see Tip)
  • ½ teaspoon red chili pepper paste
  • 3 cups sliced bok choy
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1½ teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted (see Tip)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef and chili paste in hot oil about 3 minutes or until beef is desired doneness. Remove skillet from heat. Reduce heat to medium. Remove beef from skillet with a slotted spoon, reserving liquid in skillet; keep beef warm.
  2. Add remaining 1 teaspoon sesame oil to skillet. Add bok choy and garlic; cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until bok choy is crisp-tender. Transfer to serving dish. Top with warm beef mixture. Drizzle with soy sauce and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
  • Tips: Partially freeze beef for easier slicing.
  • To toast sesame seeds, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350-degree F oven about 5 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.
