Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; thinly slice on an angle. Halve the peas. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the root end of the bok choy; roughly chop. In a bowl, combine the soy glaze and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. 

Cook the beef:
2 Cook the beef:

Separate the beef; pat dry with paper towels. Place in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add half the rice flour (you will have extra) and stir to coat. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned beef in an even layer and cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until browned and just cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. 

Cook the vegetables:
3 Cook the vegetables:

Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil to the pan of reserved fond; heat on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Add the halved peas, chopped garlic, chopped bok choy, and 2 tablespoons of water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened and the water has cooked off.

Finish & serve your dish:
4 Finish & serve your dish:

Add the cooked beef and sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until coated and combined. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Enjoy!
