A Healthy Twist on “Spicy Beef with Shrimp & Bok Choy “

from F.D. Myers Education Center (Washington, Saratoga, Warren, Hamilton, Essex BOCES)
·         1/4 cup  rice wine
·         1 1/2 tablespoons oyster-flavored sauce
·         2 teaspoons cornstarch
·         4 teaspoons canola oil, divided
·         3/4 pound sirloin steak, trimmed of fat, cut in half lengthwise and thinly sliced
·         1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
·         10 raw shrimp, (21-25 per pound), peeled, deveined and chopped
·         1 pound  baby bok choy, (Chinese cabbage) trimmed and sliced into 1-inch piece

Whisk rice wine, oyster sauce and cornstarch in a small bowl until the cornstarch is dissolved.

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat.

Add beef and crushed red pepper to taste; cook, stirring, until the beef begins to brown, 1 to 2 minutes.

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.

Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat in the same pan. Add bok choy and cook, stirring, until it begins to wilt, 2 to 4 minutes.

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.
