Sesame Soy Spinach

My mother-in-law recently sent us home with leftover kalbi (a Korean beef dish).  It was boneless (which, in my experience, is somewhat unusual for kalbi),and boy was it delicious!  I decided to make an Asian style spinach dish to go along with the tender and flavorful meat.  I pretty much just gathered some ingredients and threw them together.  It turned out pretty good though (if I do say so myself!).  It was super quick to make too.  In fact, it cooked faster than the beef did!
