Ingredients

SAUCE

  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp mirin
  • 1/2-3/4 tsp cracked pepper

FRIED RICE

  • 2 x 250g microwave pouches brown rice (8.8oz)
  • 4 cups frozen stir fry veggies (500g/1lb 2oz)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp peanut oil

BEEF

  • 550 g been sirloin steak (1lb 3oz)
  • 2 tsp peanut oil

Instructions

  1. MAKE SAUCE

    Crush garlic. Place all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Remove 3 tablespoons sauce into a small dish (this is for the fried rice).

  2. PREPARE FRIED RICE INGREDIENTS

    Microwave rice according to instructions on packet. Microwave veggies until defrosted. Pat dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture.

  3. COOK BEEF

    Thinly slice steak and season with a little salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large frying pan on high. Add beef (best to do this in a couple of batches, so it doesn’t stew) and stir fry until just cooked to your liking (1-2 minutes only). Remove onto a plate, turn heat down to medium-high and add larger quantity of sauce to pan. Simmer until syrupy (about 2 minutes). Return beef and any juices to pan, stir into the sauce and reduce heat to very low to keep warm.

  4. MAKE FRIED RICE

    Whisks eggs with a fork. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large wok over high heat. Add eggs and cook until scrambled. Remove from the pan onto a small plate. Add remaining teaspoon of oil, then the vegetables and stir fry for a couple of minutes, until they start to brown. Add rice and sauce (set aside in step 1) and stir fry for 1-2 minutes. Stir through egg.

  5. SERVE

    Divide fried rice between warmed serving plates or bowls and top with beef and sauce.
