Steak Stir Fry

This summer I joined a Community Supported Agricultural (CSA). I prepaid for my produce for the summer and each week I pick up my share. Besides making us eat more vegetables, we also are trying new vegetables I normally would not purchase at the grocery store. The best thing is we normally eat a lot of salads (to counter the sweets) so we are just eating more salads. Since I had a lot of bok choy with spinach and broccoli this week, I decided to make a stir fry. 
Steak Stir Fry
2 tsp vegetable oil
8 oz. Strip Steak, cut into bite size pieces
1 green onion stalk, chopped including the white parts
1 Tbsp ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. bok choy, in bite size pieces
1 carrot, shredded
1 cup spinach, chopped in large pieces
1 cup broccoli, chopped into large pieces
1 Tbsp water
optional toppings: wonton noodles or toasted almonds

  1. Heat a large skillet or wok over medium high heat.
  2. Add the oil and then the steak for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the green onion, ginger, and garlic. Stir for about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the bok choy, carrot, spinach, broccoli, and water. Stir well.
  5. Cover and allow to cook for about 2 minutes.
  6. Stir and cover. Allow to cook for 2 more minutes or until vegetables and steak are cooked to the desired taste.
  7. Serve over rice or pasta with additional toppings.

Did you already know.....................
-CSA is a way for farmers to sell their produce directly to the consumers before the crops are harvested and the community shares some of the risk.
-There are thousands of CSA farms throughout America.
-Some CSA provide eggs, mushrooms, flowers, fruit, and other items.
