Chinese Oval Flat Noodles

I'm cooking a lot more Chinese lately.  Here's my latest from scratch creation, done without a recipe!  No filter on this photo either... it really is that greasy hahaha.

1/2 lb ground beef, pork, turkey or chicken
2 bunches of baby bok choy, rinsed and separated
1 package of flat Shanghai rice noodles (just place them in boiling water for a bit to soften them, no need to cook 'em for too long thereafter)
1/2 cup light soy sauce
1/3 cup sesame oil
1 T corn starch
1 tsp pepper
1-2 garlic cloves, diced
1/4 cup black bean paste

In a bowl, mix ground meat with soy sauce, sesame oil, corn starch, garlic, and pepper.  Mix around.  In a medium saucepan, cook meat on medium until meat is browned.  Remove and cook bok choy in the leftover oil.  Add in the softened noodles, black bean paste, and cooked meat already put to the side.  Cook together for a bit... and done!
