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).

The okra was something I hadn't tried before, seemed a bit weird though not at all unpleasant

Laura - 1st June 2020

Was full of flavour, however we didn’t feel it reminded us of the crispy chicken we have from our chinese takeaway, meant we was a little disappointed. But it was really tasty, just not quiet what we was expecting

Make it all at once. I coated it in flour and left it a couple of hours. It did not go as crispy as expected so make it all in one!

Charlee - 26th May 2020

Make sure the pan cools down after you’ve fried the beef strips

Aaron - 25th May 2020

Was great, sugar snap peas could do with some seasoning, but other than that it was quick and tasty.
