Water for the Rice
Pour the water for the rice (see pantry for amount) into a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.
Stir in the rice and 1/4 tsp salt and bring to the boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium and cover with the lid.
Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat (still covered) and leave to the side for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Meanwhile, trim the cucumber, then halve lengthways. Chop into roughly 1cm wide strips, then chop into 1cm pieces.
Peel and grate the ginger. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Crush the peanuts in the unopened sachet using a rolling pin.
Heat a large frying pan on high heat (no oil).
Once hot, add the beef mince and fry until browned, 4-5 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. The beef is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Stir in the Thai style spice blend (add less if you'd prefer things milder), ginger and garlic. Cook for 1-2 mins.
Add the ketjap manis and a splash of water, then stir and simmer until glazed, 1 min. Once cooked, cover with a lid to keep warm. IMPORTANT: The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix together the soy sauce, sugar (see pantry for amount) and rice vinegar.
Add the cucumber to the bowl of dressing. Toss to coat well.
Reheat the mince if needed.
Fluff up your rice with a fork, then share between your bowls.
Top with the spicy beef mince and sprinkle over the peanuts. Serve with the cucumber salad alongside. TIP: Load your fork with a bit of everything for the best experience!
