  1. Rub 1 tbsp of the curry paste over the steak. Heat the oil in a frying pan and bring a small pan of water to the boil. Cook the steak for 2 mins on each side for medium rare, or to your liking. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Add the remaining curry paste, coconut cream, sugar, chilli and lime zest and juice to the pan, and bubble until slightly thickened. Meanwhile, add the beans to the boiling water and cook for 3 mins, then drain.

  2. Pour any resting juices from the steak into the sauce, then slice the steak into strips. Heat the rice (if not already hot), then divide between 2 bowls. Top with the beans, steak, coconut dressing, coriander and crispy onions.

Really quick and delicious. We used leftover beef and added some asparagus. Even the children are it! (With milk to calm down the heat!)

This was great. Had to get everything ready to go before cooking, but we really enjoyed it. Served it with the Thai carrot and radish salad, and that too was great.

Another great midweek recipe, although I couldn't be bothered to boil the beans separately so just threw them in the sauce to cook.
