FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
With this recipe I obviously used ground beef but you can also use ground pork, turkey, chicken or venison with this.
No. If you want to add some heat then use my suggestion of pouring a little Sriracha on it when serving.
There is salt in this recipe because of the soy sauce. I encourage you to start with a little then add as you go until you get the flavor you enjoy. You can always sprinkle on a little more when serving. A reduced soy sauce can also be used as I used here.
You could add in some won ton strips, tortilla strips or chow mein noodles. Won ton and tortilla strips are usually found near the salad dressings and salad toppings in your grocery store. Chow mein noodles will usually be food near the other Asian foods.
If you aren't familiar, bok choy is a Chinese cabbage. You can leave it out if you prefer or maybe substitute with some Swiss chard or just use regular bok choy if you can find that. If you really want more veggies in this recipe, you could also chop up some broccoli into small bite-sized pieces.
I have started using these pastes a lot more recently because they combine so well into a lot of dishes and you aren't crunching down on bites of ginger and garlic (which have very strong flavors.) The pastes are going to be found in the refrigerated aisle near the fresh herbs (generally where the bagged salads are located.) They have to be kept refrigerated at all times. However, if you can't find them, just use the jarred stuff.
You can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, just place your portions in a microwave safe bowl or in a skillet until heated through.
