3. In a large skillet, add half of the peanut oil and brown the onion, garlic, and bok choy. Once browned, add immediately to the pot.


4. Add the remaining peanut oil and lightly brown the steak slices. Once browned, add to the pot. Should finish cooking through in a couple of minutes. Add the sriracha.


5. Stir in scallions, basil, and chicken bouillon. Add salt and pepper to taste.


6. Divide noodles into bowls using a fork (noodles may be stuck together, this is normal). Ladle hot soup over noodles.
