The pearly white seeds you see here don’t come straight out of the fruit that way. They must be hulled from their darker shells first. We’re told that the famous phrase ‘Open Sesame’ from Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves is a reference to ripe sesame seeds popping out of their shells. Dinner and useful trivia … #winning.

Brown Basmati Rice
Soy Sauce(ContainsCereals containing Gluten, Soya)
Rinse the brown rice thoroughly under cold running water. Bring a large pot of water with a pinch of salt to the boil. Add the rice and cook on high heat for 25 mins until cooked through. Drain and cover with a lid and keep to one side.
Peel and finely chop the garlic. Peel the ginger using the edge of a spoon and finely chop. Finely slice the spring onion into discs, separating the white and green parts.
Mix the soy sauce with the honey, half your garlic, your ginger and the whites from your spring onion. Tip: This is your teriyaki marinade! Cut the steak into thin strips and soak in your teriyaki marinade for as long as you can.
Cut the bok choy in half lengthways and then slice thinly widthways. Discard the root when you’ve cut down as far as you can.
Heat a non-stick frying pan with a splash of oil over high heat. Add your steak and fry for a few mins, then remove from the pan. Tip: Leave the excess marinade in the bowl, while you brown your steak in batches. Once your steak is removed from the pan, add your remaining marinade to the pan and allow to thicken slightly. Then add your steak back in.
In a separate pan, heat a splash of oil over medium heat. Add your remaining garlic and cook until it just starts to change colour. Add the bok choy and a pinch of salt and cook for 2-3 mins. Add your cooked rice, a grind of black pepper and mix. Cook until it’s heated through.
Serve your rice topped with your teriyaki beef and sprinkle over the green parts of your spring onion and of course the black sesame seeds!
