To prepare the steak and buk choy, place the sliced steak in a large zip lock bag. In a medium bowl, whisk the mandarin zest, juice, ginger, garlic, chili, honey, soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon of the oil. Coat the steak with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the marinade. Seal the bag and marinate the steak for at least 1 hour. Reserve the remaining marinade.
Heat a char-grill pan over medium-high. In a large bowl, toss the buk choy with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil, season with salt, and grill for about 1 minute per side, or until grill marks form. Transfer the buk choy to a cutting board and cut out the cores. Return the buk choy to the bowl and toss with half of the reserved marinade.
Dry the marinade off of the steak and season with salt. Increase the heat for the char-grill to high. Working in batches, grill the steak for about 30 seconds per side, or until grill marks form and the steak is cooked to medium-rare done. Transfer the steak to a cutting board and rest for about 2 minutes. Cut the beef into 3cm bite-size pieces and toss with the remaining reserved marinade.
Meanwhile, to make the carrot salad and serve, in a small bowl, toss the carrot, sesame seeds, and sesame oil to coat and season with salt.
Divide the rice among 4 bowls. Place the buk choy, carrot salad, and steak over the rice, spooning any sauce that has accumulated from the steak into the bowls. Top each with an egg, sprinkle with spring onions and serve.
Make-Ahead: The sliced beef can be marinated up to 1 day ahead.
