  1. First make your marinade, combine kecap manis, sesame oil, sugar and chillies in a small jug. Place steak in a ceramic shallow dish, drizzle with marinade and coat, refrigerate for at least 30mins or overnight for a stronger flavour.
  2. Heat wok over high heat. Add 1 tbs peanut oil, using a slotted spoon remove meat from marinade and keep your marinade, add half the beef and stir fry for 1-2mins until evenly browned. Transfer to a plate, repeat until all beef is done.
  3. Add remaining 1tbs oil to wok. Add shallots, garlic and your long red chilli and stir fry for 1 min. Add bok choy, stock, remaining 1 tbs kecap manis and reserve marinade (oh the smell). Toss to combine and cover and cook for 1 min. Return beef to wok, toss until hot.
  4. Serve immediately with steamed rice.
