Large Saucepan

Small Bowl


Cook the Rice

a) Boil a half-full kettle.

b) Pour the boiled water into a large saucepan with 1/4 tsp salt on high heat. Add the rice and cook for 10-12 mins.

c) Once cooked, drain in a sieve and pop back in the pan. Cover with a lid and leave to the side until ready to serve.

Do the Prep

a) Meanwhile, drain and rinse the black beans in a sieve. 

b) Cut the tomato into 1/2cm chunks. Zest and cut the lime into wedges.

c) Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Time to Salsa

a) In a small bowl, combine the tomato, juice from half the lime, a drizzle of olive oil, the sugar (see pantry for amount) and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

Get Frying

a) Heat a large frying pan on medium-high heat (no oil).

b) Once hot, add the beef mince. Fry until the mince has browned, 5-6 mins. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks. 

c) When the mince has browned, drain and discard any excess fat. Season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. It's cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Add the Flavour

a) Add the garlic, Caribbean style jerk and tomato puree to the pan and cook until fragrant, 1 min.

b) Stir through the black beans, soy sauce and water for the sauce (see pantry for amount). Simmer until thickened, 2-3 mins.

c) Once thickened, add the spinach to the pan a handful at a time until wilted and piping hot, 1-2 mins.

d) Stir through the BBQ sauce and butter (see pantry for amount) until melted. Remove from the heat.

Finish and Serve

a) Fluff the rice up with a fork and stir through the lime zest, then share between your bowls.

b) Top with the Caribbean beef and tomato salsa. 

c) Serve with any remaining lime wedges for squeezing over.

d) Enjoy!
