Spicy beef stir fry
by Jamie Oliver
200g beef minute steaks
150g white rice
2 spring onions
1 clove garlic
2cm fresh ginger
1 fresh red chilli
1 small carrot
1 small red onion
1 small bunch fresh coriander
1 tsp five-spice powder (I used all spice)
1/2 tsp cornflour (I used plain flour)
2 tsp runny honey
Fill your kettle and put it on to boil. Preheat your oven to the lowest
setting and place your plates in the oven to warm.
Fill the saucepan with the boiling water and place on a high heat.
Once boiling, add the rice and simmer according to packet instructions
until the rice is cooked.
Meanwhile, trim and finely slice the spring onions. Crack the egg into
a small bowl, add a splash of soy sauce and the sliced spring onions
and beat with a fork.
Peel and finely chop the chilli. Peel and finely slice the carrot and onion.
When the rice is cooked, drain it in a sieve then tip back into the warm
saucepan. Pour the egg mixture over the rice and fold with a fork.
Cover with a lid to keep warm.
Place the wok on a medium heat. Pick the coriander leaves and put
to one side for later, finely chop the stalks.
Slice the steaks into thin strips and place these in a bowl with the
five-spice powder. Season with salt and pepper then toss together
until all the strips of meat are evenly coated.
By now the wok should be really hot, so add a splash of vegetable
oil and the strips of beef. Turn the heat up to high and stir fry until
the beef starts to brown.
Throw the garlic and ginger into the wok and stir fry for a few seconds.
Add the chilli, onion, carrot and coriander stalks and stir fry for another
minute or two. Add a splash of soy sauce, the cornflour and honey to
the wok, Drizzle over a little sesame oil and toss everything together.
Turn the heat off.
Get your warmed plates out of the oven and divide the eggy rice
between them. Spoon the beef stir fry over the top, scatter with
coriander leaves and tuck in.
