tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

Remove the noodles from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop. In a bowl, combine the soy glaze, sesame oil, vinegar, 1/2 cup of water, and as much of the gochujang as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

2 Cook the beef

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the beef; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

Cook the vegetables

To the pan of reserved fond, add the diced peppers and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium-high, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped bok choy; season with salt and pepper.
