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

Came out bland with no flavor. Meat was slimy. I'd add some kind of chili or spice and skip the cornstarch. Meh...

The flavor is good, but skirt steak is too tough. I will use a better cut of meat next time.

This was very delicious. It IS better (and healthier) than takeout I might have ordered. I don't disagree with the comment that adding the cornstarch to the soy sauce mixture would work - I didn't find the meat slimy, just would move it to this other step to get the meat to brown a bit more. I did end up adding more salt and pepper to final plating in my bowl - so would bump that up in cooking process (add salt to bok choy/carrot cooking, add more to meat before it hits the heated pan). Yum!

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 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.
