Beef and Bok Choy are a Healthy Combination
Are you getting tired of eating beef and broccoli? Consider shaking it up with some bok choy. It’s a member of the brassica family and is often under appreciated. However, bok choy is packed with nutritious goodness, including folate, calcium, and vitamin C. This veggie packs a mild, sweet taste that goes well with multiple flavors. It’s the perfect addition to your beef dishes.
Start adding bok choy to your list of cruciferous veggies to eat regularly. It’s a member of the cabbage family and it’s one of the top vegetables when it comes to nutrition. It offers great amounts of 21 different nutrients. In fact, research shows that bok choy contains more than 70 antioxidant phenolic substances. Since it has a high amount of beta-carotene, it’s a great source of vitamin A. In fact, the high amount of vitamin A makes it better for you than many other cruciferous veggies, such as Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, and even broccoli.
When you whip up your beef and bok choy, make sure that you choose lean cuts of beef to help you cut back on calories and fat without sacrificing the delicious flavor you crave. Flank steak is a healthier option. Make sure you don’t overcook your bok choy. The trick is to cook it until it’s tender-crisp, which will give you the delicious flavor you want. If you accidentally overcook it, you’ll end up with a mushy, slimy mess. Place the bok choy in your pan and cook until the color begins to change. Add some fish sauce and beef, stir it up, and you’ll have a quick, healthy, and tasty meal.
