Stir-fries are some of the most flavorful and healthful dishes you can prepare—and they come together fast once the ingredients are prepped and ready to go. And that’s the key to stir-fry: make the sauce, chop the vegetables, and, in this case, grill the meat and cook the noodles before putting the flame under the wok. Thai sauces are typically spicy, as in this recipe, but they’re a little sweet and sour as well. White or brown sugar, plenty of fresh lime juice, and pungent fish sauce form the base of this delicious, flavor-loaded dish.

For the Sauce
  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • 3 tbs fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tbsp sambal oelek (fresh ground chile paste)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 3 tsp vegetable broth (or water)
For the Stir-Fry
  • 2 oz Thai rice noodle sticks
  • 1 8-oz New York strip steak (or rib-eye), about ¾-inch thick
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • peanut oil for brushing, plus 1 tbsp
  • 2 Thai chilies, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • ½ medium red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 2 scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
  • 1 very small head of bok choy (or 2 baby bok choy stalks) coarsely chopped, leaves included

For the Sauce
  1. Whisk the first 5 ingredients (through oil) in a medium bowl until the sugar dissolves. Combine the cornstarch and vegetable broth in a small bowl, stirring until the cornstarch dissolves. Whisk into the fish sauce mixture and set aside. (Re-whisk before adding to the stir-fry.)Sauce Ingredients
