Minced Beef with Bok Choy and Egg

Great Cooking Light recipe recc from my sister. Super easy, nice flavor with a little kick. Noted a few slight changes in the recipe (double the sauce, used a bit more meat, etc.)


2 1/2 teaspoons sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons Thai chile paste
2 1/2 teaspoons fish sauce
2 1/2 teaspoons lower-sodium soy sauce (note: I doubled the sauce)
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided (note: I used coconut oil)
3 garlic cloves, minced
12 ounces 90% lean ground beef (note: I used 16 oz)
3/4 teaspoon crushed dried Thai chile or crushed red pepper
3 small baby bok choy, cut lengthwise into quarters
4 large eggs
2 cups cooked brown rice (note: I used white rice)

Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl.

Heat a large cast-iron skillet or wok over high heat. Add 2 teaspoons oil; swirl to coat. Add garlic; stir-fry 10 seconds. Add beef to pan; stir-fry 2 minutes or until beef is done. Stir in soy mixture; cook 30 seconds or until sauce thickens slightly. Place on a plate; keep warm. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and crushed red pepper to pan; cook for 10 seconds. Add bok choy; stir-fry 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Place on plate with beef.

Wipe pan clean with a paper towel. Heat remaining 2 1/2 teaspoons oil in pan over medium heat; swirl to coat. Crack eggs, 1 at a time, into pan; cook 2 minutes. Cover pan, and cook 1 minute or until whites are set. Divide rice, beef, and bok choy among 4 bowls. Top each dish with 1 egg.
