A note about serious food allergies
Sweet, sticky, garlicky good… open sesame to Flavortown for this easy-to-make, easier-to-love dish. Fresh and earthy, bok choy provides the perfect complement for fluffy rice and hearty steak strips. But it’s the mix of great Asian flavor profiles that puts this meal over the top: garlic, ginger, sesame, and a hint of lime. Every bite is simply perfection. Tip: Bok choy can retain some grit, even after washing. To completely clean, hold upside down in a bowl of water. Shake slightly to release the grit.

If using flank steak, follow same instructions as steak strips.
If using shrimp, pat dry and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as steak strips in Step 4, cooking shrimp undisturbed until seared on one side, 2-3 minutes. Flip, and cook until shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 1-2 minutes.
If using diced chicken thighs, pat dry and season all over with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Follow same instructions as steak strips in Step 4, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.
Cook the Rice
Bring a small pot with rice and 1½ cups water to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes.
Remove from burner. Add half the seasoning blend and fluff rice with a fork to combine. Taste, and add remaining seasoning blend if desired. Cover and set aside.
While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Remove any discolored outer leaves from bok choy and trim ends. Cut stems into ¼" slices and coarsely chop leaves, keeping stems and leaves separate.
Halve lime. Quarter one half and juice the other half.
Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Season all over with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
Cook the Bok Choy
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add bok choy stems to hot pan and stir occasionally until softened, 5-7 minutes.
Add garlic, bok choy leaves, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Stir often until leaves are just wilted, 1-2 minutes.
Add 1 Tbsp. lime juice and bring to a simmer.
Once simmering, remove from burner. Transfer bok choy to a plate and tent with foil. Keep pan over medium-high heat.
Cook the Steak Strips
Add 1 tsp. olive oil and steak strips to hot pan and stir occasionally until no pink remains and steak strips reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes.
Stir in sesame sauce and honey. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until sauce coats steak strips, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from burner.
Finish the Dish
If desired, combine steak strips with bok choy.
