Reduce heat to medium. Add remaining Garlic Mixture to pan and cook until softened, about 30 seconds. Stir in Five-Spice Powder, then Broth and Soy Sauce.
Peel Sweet Potato, cut in half lengthwise, and cut into 1/4 in thick slices. Add to Broth. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat then reduce heat and simmer 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, trim ends from the Bok Choy, rinse, separate leaves and cut into wide diagonal slices.
Stir Bok Choy into stew and simmer just until wilted, about 2 minutes.
Stir in Beef and cook until hot, 1 to 2 minutes. Cut Onions in 3 in slivers. Ladle stew into bowls and garnish with Onions.
