Minced Beef with Bok Choy and Fried Egg

So D made this.  He said it was a little more intense in making than a usual CL recipe.  Something about how to keep the Bok Choy warm.

It was good though.  D used 1lb of ground beef because we have long figured out that 1lb in Kroger terms equals 15oz on a good day, but we got some marked down, and had a coupon so we had it in the freezer.  So there's that.

We can't have as lunch left overs (at work) because of the egg.  But still we would have again.  D said next time though, he would cut the Bok Choy and stir fry it with the meat.  Sounds good to me.

For a little extra heat and a pop of color, drizzle a few drops of Sriracha over the eggs right before serving.

Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: 1/2 cup beef, 1/2 cup rice, 3 pieces bok choy, and 1 egg)

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
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
3 garlic cloves, minced
12 ounces 90% lean ground beef
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

1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl.

2. 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.

3. 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.
