Beef-Broccoli-BokChoy Stir-fry

So while doing the silly “create a fake album cover” thing on facebook, I used the online photo editor called picnik.com. Now I must warn you of this because it was fun and I may be addicted.  Every photo on my blog for the next few weeks will probably look a bit like a Lean Cuisine box. Especially this time because it was a stir-fry!

bbb stir-fry with Japanese dressing

I just bought some flank steak, broccoli, bok choy, green beans, a few green onions and radishes. Cooked them in my fake wok with a little peanut oil and added the Japanese dressing.

  • 10 dried shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1/3 cup Japanese soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup mirin
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tbls sugar

Soak the mushrooms in the boiling water for 10 minutes. Take 1/4 cup of the soaking liquid and mix with the other ingredients. Drain the mushrooms, cut into quarters and add to dressing. Pour over the stir-fry just before it finishes cooking and boil for a few minutes to thicken a little, although this is not a very thick sauce. Sell to Lean Cuisine. Except there are probably too many actual nutrients (and calories) for them. I could try :) Does bok choy freeze well? Probably not.
