Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Add 10 cups hot water and 1 tbsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. While water comes to a boil, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add sesame seeds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) Transfer to a plate. Thinly slice green onions.
Heat the same pan over medium-high. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then beef. Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.** Season with salt and pepper, then stir, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Using a slotted spoon, transfer beef to a large bowl. Cover to keep warm. Reserve 1/2 tbsp fat (dbl for 4 ppl) in the pan, then carefully discard remaining.
Reheat the pan with reserved fat over medium-high. When hot, add onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, 2-3 min. Add bok choy and coleslaw cabbage mix. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until veggies are tender-crisp, 2-3 min. Remove the pan from heat, then transfer veggies to the large bowl with beef. Cover to keep warm.
While veggies stir-fry, add chow mein noodles to the boiling water. Cook uncovered until tender, 1-2 min. Drain noodles, then rinse under warm water. Return noodles to the same pot, off heat.
Add hoisin sauce, soy sauce, broth concentrate and 1/2 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) to the same pan (from step 3). Cook over medium, stirring occasionally, until combined and warmed through, 1-2 min.
Add sauce, beef, veggies and half the green onions to the pot with noodles. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine. (TIP: For a lighter sauce, add more water, 1-2 tbsp at a time, if desired!) Divide hoisin beef noodles between plates. Sprinkle sesame seeds and remaining green onions over top.
