Before you start
You will need a wok or frying pan.
Put the serving dish in the oven at the lowest setting to keep the vegetables warm while the meat cooks.
- Slice the meat into strips ½ to 1 cm wide and about 5 cm long. Mix with the soy sauce, tomato paste, Cognac or brandy (optional), cornstarch, sugar, and a bit of grated ginger. Chill for at least an hour in the refrigerator.
- Preheat the oven to the lowest setting.
- Prepare the vegetables. Coarsely chop the onion, cut the pepper into strips, halve or quarter the bok choy (depening on the size) and mince or press the garlic.
- Heat ½ to 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying-pan or wok. Add the garlic, onion, bell pepper, and chili pepper. Add a little salt and cook about 5 min until they start to soften, taking care not let them burn. Add the bok choy and stir-fry 4-5 min, until cooked but still crunchy. Set the vegetables aside on the warmed serving plate in the oven.
- Add the remaining oil and the marinated meat. Reserve the remaining marinade. Stir constantly over medium heat 5-7 min until the meat is almost cooked. Put the vegetables back into the wok and add the remaining grated ginger. Stir in the reserved marinade. Cook another 2 min. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve.
