From the Test Kitchen

This dish gets its gourmet flair from fresh lo mein noodles, whose delightfully springy texture is perfectly complemented by our sweet and savory sauce and bits of tender beef. A garnish of crunchy cashews tossed with sesame seeds finishes the dish.

Fill a large pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water. Cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Quarter lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; thinly slice, separating the leaves and stems. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Roughly chop the cashews. Place in a bowl. Add the sesame seeds and a drizzle of olive oil; stir to thoroughly coat. In a separate bowl, combine the soy glaze, black bean-chile sauce, vinegar, and 1/4 cup of water.
