Ground Beef with Bok Choy
One of the simplest and most satisfying dish you can serve your family. I must admit I made this one night because I was in a hurry. This is a what you can see on a typical Filipino dining table, some kind of meat sautéed with whatever vegetable on hand. Filipino’s like to season their food with fish sauce but I prefer soy sauce.
First, saute 1 medium sized finely chopped onion cook until translucent. Then add 2 cloves of minced garlic and cook until fragrant. Add your 1 lb. ground beef and cook until well browned. I like to add 1 tsp. ground pepper at this point and let it cook with the beef. Then add in 1-2 chopped roma tomatoes. Stir and let this cook down until it has released it’s juices. Pour in 2 cups water and season with 4 tbsp. soy sauce or to taste. Cover and let simmer for a few minutes. Then add a bunch of roughly chopped bok choy. Stir until just combined and cover. Let cook for 1-2 minutes then turn off heat. Remember not to overcook your bok choy, you want your vegetables to be crisp tender.
