Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.
