  • 1/4 cup Shao Hsing rice wine 

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons oyster-flavored sauce 

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch 

  • 4 teaspoons canola oil, divided

  • 3/4 pound sirloin steak, trimmed of fat, cut in half lengthwise, and thinly sliced

  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper 

  • 10 raw shrimp (21-25 per pound), peeled, deveined, and chopped

  • 1 pound bok choy, trimmed and sliced into 1-inch pieces

  • 1 clove garlic, minced



  • Combine the rice wine, oyster sauce, and cornstarch in a small bowl. Whisk until the cornstarch has dissolved.

  • Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Cook the beef and crushed red pepper to taste for 1-2 minutes or until the beef begins to brown. Add the garlic and shrimp, and cook for 1-2 minutes or until the shrimp is opaque and pink. Remove the beef, shrimp, and any juices from the pan.

  • Add the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil over medium-high heat in the same pan or wok. Cook the bok choy for 2-4 minutes or until it begins to wilt. Add in the cornstarch mixture. Return the beef-shrimp mixture to the pan and cook until it has heated through and the sauce has thickened, about 1 minute.
