2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
5g fresh coriander – chop leaves finely
1 clove garlic – peel, grate finely & chop
1/4 chilli (optional) – deseed & chop finely

1 courgette – trim ends & dice (1cm)
75g pak choi – slice stalks (1cm), keep leaves whole

Preparation: Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.
Sesame soy sauce: Mix together the soy sauce, sesame oil, apple cider vinegar, coriander, garlic and chilli (as much or as little as you like).
Beef strips: Place a pan on high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When hot, add the beef strips and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes until golden brown and cooked, but still slightly pink inside. Remove from the heat and pour over HALF the sauce.
Stir-fry: Using the same pan, add the courgettes with the sliced pak choi stalks and spring onions and sauté for 3-4 minutes until slightly golden. Season with salt and pepper, then add the pak choi leaves and cook for another 2-3 minutes until wilted. Add the beef back to the pan and mix through the rest of the sauce.
Serve the stir-fry while hot.
