my Friday night dinner


I’m not going to lie.. I just made an awesome dinner for myself. It’s been a while since I’ve been home on a Friday night so all I want to do is eat a delicious meal and watch TV on the couch all night 🙂

I was craving steak earlier today so I went to the market after work and picked up a New York strip steak. I decided to make myself a little rice bowl with steak, bok choy and shiitake mushrooms. Just cook your steak how you like (I season with salt & pepper, sear it in a pan and finish in the oven) and slice into strips. The mushrooms were sauteed with olive oil and the bok choy was steamed and then sauteed with oyster sauce. Below is a good recipe for bok choy with oyster sauce. I did my own version with oyster sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil and minced garlic. After everything is cooked, assemble the ingredients on top of rice and top with more oyster sauce. SO GOOD! It’s always nice to have satisfying meal. Now time to lounge on the couch! Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂
