Beef Stir-Fry w/ Bok Choy

I went to the farmer's market Saturday and picked up a bunch of Bok Choy, which I have never actually bought before, but figured I'd try it out on something. I wasn't even sure if I had eaten it before or how it tasted, but I decided to try it in a stir-fry. My mom had given me a sirloin steak and I had quite a bit of ingredients on hand to make a sauce... I decided just to throw sauces together in equal proportions and see how it turned out... It was really great! The trick is to fast fry the steak and make sure It's not cooked any longer than it needs to be, so it doesn't turn chewey or tough.

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons oil
1 pound bok choy, stems removed, leaves washed and chopped
1 pound round or sirloin steak, sliced thin
2 onions, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon ginger paste
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 tomato, sliced into wedges
black pepper, to taste

Sauce (combine)

1 tablespoon plum sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon sriracha hot chili sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 tablespoon cornstarch combined with a little water to make a paste

Method:

Heat oil in large skillet and fry onion, ginger, garlic and bell pepper until it starts to soften, add beef to hot oil and fry at high heat until it browns. Add the combined sauce, tomato and bok choy and cook a couple minutes. Add the cornstarch mixture and cook a minute until thickened. Serve over noodles or rice.
