a) Boil a full kettle.
b) When boiling, pour the water into a large saucepan with 1/4 tsp salt on high heat. Add the rice and cook for 10-12 mins.
c) When cooked, drain in a sieve and pop back in the pan. Cover with a lid and leave to the side until ready to serve.


a) Meanwhile, halve, peel and thinly slice the red onion.
b) Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips.
c) Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all).

b) When the oil is hot, add the beef strips and sprinkle over the Thai style spice blend (add less if you don't like heat).
c) Stir-fry until browned, 1-2 mins. TIP: Fry in batches if necessary - you want the beef to brown, not stew. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. The beef is safe to eat when the outside is browned.
d) Once browned, transfer the beef to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.


a) Wipe out the pan and return to high heat with a drizzle of oil if needed.
