Add the onions and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the baby bok choys and stir fry until they are fully cooked and the onions are tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. 

  6. Place the cooked ingredients on one side of the pan to make place for the noodles. put heat on high and and add another tablespoon of vegetable oil and add the cooked noodles. Toss the noodles in the pan gently using tongs for about 30 seconds until they are well combined. Pour the sauce mixture over the noodles and mix well with tongs until all the noodles are uniform in color. Add the bean sprouts and and toss gently. Add in the cooked slices of beef and mix well. For a bit of char, let the ingredients sit for about 30 seconds to 1 minute on the pan without stirring. Remove from heat and serve.
