Instructions

Cook the Rice
1
  • Pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to medium and cover with the lid.
  • Leave to cook for 12 mins, then remove the pot from the heat.
  • Keep covered for another 12 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Get Prepped
2
  • Meanwhile, halve the bell pepper, remove the core and seeds and thinly slice.
  • Trim and thinly slice the pak choi widthways.
  • Peel and grate the ginger (use a teaspoon to easily scrape away the peel). 
  • Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all).
Fry the Mince
3
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat (without oil). 
  • Once hot, add the beef mince and fry until browned, 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince. Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks.
Add the Veg
4
  • Add the pepper to the pan with a drizzle of oil if necessary.
  • Cook until softened, stirring occasionally, 4-5 mins.
  • Add the Thai spice and ginger and fry until fragrant, 1 min.
  • Add the beef stock powder along with 75ml water (double for 4p).
  • Stir in the pak choi. Simmer until the liquid has reduced by half and the pak choi is tender, 3-4 mins.
Season the Sauce
5
  • When the liquid has reduced, stir through the red Thai paste, ketjap manis and half the coriander.
  • Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Fluff up the rice with a fork.

TIP: Add a splash of water if the mince has become too dry.

Finish and Serve
6
  • Fluff up the rice with a fork and divide between bowls.
  • Top with the Asian-inspired beef.
  • Finish with a sprinkling of the remaining coriander.
