The Bok Choy was particularly fresh and pretty in the grocery store yesterday so I bought the first bunch I have bought in a very long time. The day before we charcoal grilled a marinated piece of grass-fed beef brisket and there was a lot leftover. So I slivered some of the leftover meat just as thin as I could slice it to create this dish. Upon examining the refrigerator, I could see fresh mushrooms and a pretty red pepper were calling out to be added to this creation.. Mmmm. The final dish was delicious! This dish is suitable for all phases of Atkins and Paleo-Primal as well.
I make my own Hoisin sauce and the link is is the recipe I’m currently using. The only change I make is I use sugar-free honey where the linked recipe uses real honey.
