Large Saucepan


Fry the Beef

a) Boil a half-full kettle. Heat a large frying pan on medium-high heat (no oil).

b) Once hot, add the beef mince and fry until browned, 5-6 mins. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks, then drain and discard any excess fat. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. It's cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Cook the Rice

a) Pour the boiled water from your kettle into a large saucepan with 1/4 tsp salt on high heat.

b) 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.

Prep Time

a) While the rice cooks, zest the lime, then cut into wedges (see ingredients for amount).

b) Trim the pak choi, then thinly slice widthways.

Add the Veg

a) Add the sliced mushrooms and pak choi to the beef.

b) Stir-fry until the pak choi has softened and the mushrooms have started to brown, 3-4 mins.

c) Stir in the ginger, garlic & lemongrass puree. Cook until fragrant, 1 min.

Sauce Things Up

a) Stir the ketjap manis, soy and sugar for the sauce (see pantry for amount) into the beef and bring to the boil.

b) Remove the pan from the heat and squeeze in some lime juice from a lime wedge.

c) Add a splash of water if it's a little thick.

Finish and Serve

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

b) Serve the beef stir-fry on top of your zesty rice.

c) Finish with a sprinkle of chilli flakes (add less if you'd prefer things milder) and a lime wedge for squeezing over.
