Skirt Steak and Bok Choy Stir-Fry

Thanks to the skirt steak's generous marbling, you don't need much extra oil for a stir-fry with bok choy.

    This was good! I added some fresh ginger. Next time I think I will omit the corn starch on the steak and add it to the sauce instead, it made the steak a little slimy

    This sauce was great. I added fried tofu and left the steak out to make it veggie friendly. Also added mushrooms.

    I can't eat peanuts or peanut butter. What would be my best nut substitue?

    I don't understand. The text next to the photo suggests you're supposed to add cheese to this. But the recipe itself doesn't list it in ingredients or directions.
