Spicy Beef with Shrimp & Bok Choy

A speedy stir-fry with a rich flavor that is balanced with the clean, sweet crunch of bok choy.



  1. Whisk rice wine, dark soy sauce and cornstarch in a small bowl until the cornstarch is dissolved
  2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large non-stick skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  3. Add beef, garlic and crushed red pepper to taste; cook, stirring, until the beef begins to brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Add shrimp and continue to cook, stirring, until the shrimp is opaque and pink, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the beef, shrimp and any juices to a plate.
  5. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat in the same pan.
  6. Add bok choy and cook, stirring, until it begins to wilt, 2 to 4 minutes.
  7. Stir in the cornstarch mixture. Return the beef-shrimp mixture to the pan and cook, stirring, until heated through and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 1 minute.

list of ingredients says 4 tablespoons of oil, directions say teaspoons. Are nutrition facts based on tsps or tbsps?

looks super easy...would use lite soy sauce instead of regular to lower the sodium. Is it very spicy?

Great for something different, and it tasted much better after sitting for a few minutes. I did have to use regular soy sauce and regular sesame oil. I added a little extra red pepper flake to make up for not having the hot chili oil. Also, I used white grape juice instead of rice wine. Those ingredient changes may have made a big difference, but it was certainly good enough that I'll make it again sometime!
