Beef and Baby Bok Choy with Pan-Fried Noodles

Beef and Baby Bok Choy with Pan-Fried Noodles
Chinese stir-fries are often quick and healthy. They can easily be made at home, and sometimes are even better than what you get in a Chinese restaurant. Beef and Bok Choy with Pan-Fried Noodles is one such dish. Minimal chopping and using the air-fryer for the pan-fried noodles, make this an easy dish that can be made in 30-45 minutes. Although I prefer to use baby bok-choy, you can substitute regular bok-choy with good results; just use what is available at your grocery store.
