Our 20 minute recipe

  1. 1. Make the rice

    Put the rice in a lidded non-stick pan with 250ml water. Bring to the boil then turn the heat down to low, cover and simmer for 8 mins. Next, put the sugar snap peas in over the rice, (if using), and then turn the heat off and leave it covered. (If not using the peas, just turn the heat off and keep it covered.)

  2. 2 Meanwhile, prepare the beef

    Put the cornflour in a large bowl and mix in some salt and pepper to season it. Add the beef strips (see tip) and mix well to fully coat them in the flour.

  3. 3 Get stir-frying

    Heat 2 tbsp oil in a wok over medium-high heat and when hot, fry the beef in batches until crisp and browned then remove and put aside on kitchen paper. (Around 1-2 mins on each side.)

    Add a little more oil if necessary, then add the STIR-FRY SEASONING and cook for 20 secs, then add the grated carrot and the spring onions. Fry for 1 min, then pour in the HONEY SOY SAUCE with 50ml water. Turn the heat up to get it bubbling and slightly more glazed.

  4. 4. Finishing touches

    Add in the CHILLI & GARLIC SAUCE and mix well, then return the beef to the pan and toss to coat in the sauce.

  5. Serve

    Serve the rice and steamed sugar snap peas with the crispy chilli beef over the top. Garnish with sesame seeds (if having).

Really delicious-felt like a takeaway! I’d recommend patting the strips of steak dry with paper towels before coating in cornflour so the beef gets nice & crispy.

Not as crunchy as I would have liked it, I shall fry the beef for longer next time

Taste was amazing! A bit of a faff to cook the beef, would be easier to deep fry. We substituted rice for noodles and added the seasoning and soy sauce to the noodles after cooking.
